Since no file is open by root in open_std_file we could change keeping=1
to keeping=0 for everything except /dev/null in std_file_name
and in open_std_file if keeping==1 then remove O_EXCL and O_CREAT (since
it is /dev/null) and then let that lstat... S_ISREG check handle the
mode bits like it does with this last patch of yourse.

Like this (to be applied on top of your patch.
