    merge fchmod() and fchmodat() guts, kill ancient broken kludge · e57712eb

    The kludge in question is undocumented and doesn't work for 32bit
    binaries on amd64, sparc64 and s390.  Passing (mode_t)-1 as
    mode had (since 0.99.14v and contrary to behaviour of any
    other Unix, prescriptions of POSIX, SuS and our own manpages)
    was kinda-sorta no-op.  Note that any software relying on
    that (and looking for examples shows none) would be visibly
    broken on sparc64, where practically all userland is built
    32bit.  No such complaints noticed...
