Bug #23913 rename() working across partitions

Unlike copy(), rename() doesn't work across partitions and generates an error similar to:

Warning: rename() failed (Cross-device link) in foo.php

This works in Windows, not linux.  The rename() docs do not mention anything about partitions (or that it behaves like a native rename()), so this can be seen as a bug.  BC shouldn't be a concern.
