this should apply to both fifos and sockets.
creation of both are unprivileged operations,
see mkfifo(2), socket(2)/bind(2) on freebsd.
suggest moving/modifying do_mknod in these sections
to run regardles of uid and simply complain and continue
on platforms where those syscalls are restricted. just
like if a regular file can't be read due to perm/uid:
 rsync: send_files failed to open "/tmp/a.out": Permission denied (13)
