Suppose conditions:
- Old linux kernel ignoring flag
- malicious hacker force use of PLAIN FILE instead of directory

On new kernel it will fail
On old kernel it will just open that file!

So, we can make a HACK! Just add last slash to directory name. This will not hurt on new kernels, but protect on old kernels.

tests should also test a case when directory is symlink really.
