Bah. Famous last words. One of the "trivial cleanups" made the code
more "obvious" by renaming the nospec mask as just "mask".

And that trivial rename broke that patch *entirely*, because now that
name shadowed the "fmode_t" mask argument.

Don't even ask how long it took me to go from "I *tested* this,
dammit, now it doesn't work at all" to "Oh God, I'm so stupid".

So that nobody else would waste any time on this, attached is a new
attempt. This time actually tested *after* the changes.
