make_file() could ignore ENODEV errors (from afs filesystem)

Would it be acceptable to patch make_file() in flist.c to ignore any
ENODEV's and not mark them as io_error=1?

In afs, a mountpoint to a volume which does not exist gives an
ENODEV. As such, it can't be copied, so should (or could) just be

The io_error isn't terminal, but it does disable the delete function
and you end up with an exit code of 23.
