> support passing file descriptor instead of a path. os.path functions

Are you sure about that?  The docs for os.stat show the dir_fd parameter, used to avoid directory renaming issues or attacks, but it doesn’t say that the *path* argument can be an int file descriptor instead of a str file path.
