Yes, but then there are all kinds of casting problems.  That needs to
be fixed too, for systems without umode_t at all, but it led me to the
question about umode_t not being in sys/types.h.

OK, glibc people:  Why don't you get umode_t by including sys/types.h?
As far as i can tell, you have to include asm/types.h to get it;
clearly not an option for an autoconf macro.
