Possibly dumb question: why isn't this whole function a simple series of
if's, one for each MAY_ bit?

I guess you're using knowledge about the callers to know that, for
example, no one will ask for MAY_APPEND and MAY_TAKE_OWNERSHIP at the
same time?

And adding that big "if (want & (MAY_APPEND | .. | MAY_SET_TIMES))" to
let you skip over a bunch of checks in the common case?
Does this help measurably? It seems complicated and, to the extent it
makes assumptions about the callers, possibly fragile with respect to
future changes.
