merge fchmod() and fchmodat() guts, kill ancient broken kludge
The kludge in question is undocumented and doesn't work for 32bit binaries on amd64, sparc64 and s390. Passing (mode_t)-1 as mode had (since 0.99.14v and contrary to behaviour of any other Unix, prescriptions of POSIX, SuS and our own manpages) was kinda-sorta no-op. Note that any software relying on that (and looking for examples shows none) would be visibly broken on sparc64, where practically all userland is built 32bit. No such complaints noticed...
