With the Linux kernel, mknod() can be used (and is actually used) to create a
regular file specifing `S_IFREG' as the mode.
The attached patch adds this functionality to the Hurd port of glibc.
Please apply it to both the trunk and glibc-2_3-branch.

This still needs to go on the 2.3 branch.
Fixed in latest release, 2.3 doesn't really matter nowadays.
