Subject: [PATCH v2 8/8] use new SYS_fchmodat2 syscall to implement fchmodat with flags

commit 0dc4824479e357a3e23a02d35527e23fca920343 worked around for lack
of flags argument in syscall for fchmodat.

linux 6.6 introduced a new syscall, SYS_fchmodat2, fixing this
deficiency. use it if any flags are passed, and fallback to the old
strategy on ENOSYS. continue using the old syscall when there are no
flags. this is the exact same strategy used when SYS_faccessat2 was used
to implement faccessat with flags.
