Which BSP do you use?  If you want to work with a simulator BSP, then you 
should have a look at the arm/realview_pbx_a9_qemu BSP since it offers a NULL 
pointer read and write protection.  Qemu is also a fast simulator which 
provides support for GDB watch points.  This is quite handy for development and 
test suite runs.

Yes, this task is still open and it is a good start point.

I would start with a new test in


which covers the POSIX rename() specification

Fixing this bug is a very boring task.  You have to install also the tool chain 
for each RTEMS target and build all BSPs.
