    Note that the equivalent of O_NONE has been around on Linux since '92 or
    so (numeric value 3, I usually call it O_NOACCESS). It is required for
    things like fdformat and setfdprm. LILO also uses it. So the "main code
    path" already supports this. Drivers looking at f_mode or f_flags may be
    a different story, though.
