AIX defines EEXIST to the identical value as ENOTEMPTY, causing this compiler error now:

powerpc-ibm-aix6.1.0.0-gcc -std=gnu99 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..  -I../gnu -I../ -I../gnu -I../lib -I../lib  -O2 -pipe -c -o unlink.o unlink.c
unlink.c: In function 'flush_deferred_unlinks':
unlink.c:130:7: error: duplicate case value
       case ENOTEMPTY:
unlink.c:127:7: error: previously used here
       case EEXIST:
make[2]: *** [unlink.o] Error 1

Although recent AIX now supports defining _LINUX_SOURCE_COMPAT to provide different values for both, it feels easier to test for non-equal values here (patch attached).
