I think that having both umask= and mode= is not needed for sysfs and
debugfs.  I think umask= should be left, mode= removed.

If I understood correctly, with your implementation (current patch),
umask applies when entries are created initially, and mode on chmod().
If so, mode should simply be gone.

I'll start a new thread for procfs.  Of these, I mostly care about
procfs, because it is of immediate relevance to Owl.
