If two processes are racing to create the same directory tree, they will
both see that the directory doesn't exist, both try to mkdir(), and one
of them will fail.  This is okay, as we only care that the directory
gets created.  So, we add a check for EEXIST from mkdir, and continue if
the directory now exists.
