Use the name 'renameatu', as the Gnulib function is close to the
Glibc function.  Perhaps someday there will also be a renameat2
Gnulib module, which mimicks the future glibc renameat2, but that
can wait as nobody seems to need such a module now.
* lib/renameatu.c: Rename from lib/renameat2.c.
* lib/renameatu.h: Rename from lib/renameat2.h.
* modules/renameat2: Rename from modules/renameatu.
* modules/renameat2-tests: Rename from modules/renameat2-tests.
All uses of "renameat2" in identifiers or file name
changed to "renameatu", except for two instances in
lib/renameatu.c that deal with the Linux kernel's
renameat2 syscall.

Thank you for being flexible in resolving this. It's an unfortunate situation.
