patch, tweak to taste per comment

allow nonroot to try do_mknod() for fifo/sock/block/char. if block/char failed
due to nonroot perm denied [EPERM] in mknod(2):
 without -v, continue quietly, exit 0
 with -v, continue verbosely, exit 0
printing for both is the official pre-patch behavior, so the user may wish to
extend non-v with rsyserr(FINFO...) to match. actually, do_mknod's mknod()
should be wrapped with similar if and rsyserr 'skipping' statements before call
instead. applies to: cvs -D '2005-08-02 00:00:00-0000'. a little give back
against the debt, enjoy;-]
