This introduces a severe failure in the Windows port because we do not
implement fchmod. Existing fchmod invocations do not check the return
value, and they are only interested in removing the write bits, and we
generally don't care a lot if files remain writable.

I'm not proficient enough to add any ACL fiddling to fchmod that would be
required by the above change, whose purpose is to be strict about
permissions. Nor am I interested (who the heck is sharing a Windows box
anyway? ;-)

Therefore, here's just a work-around patch to keep things going on
Windows. Any opinions from the Windows corner?

Subject: [PATCH] mingw: turn the always-failing fchmod stub into 
always-succeeding

A recent change introduced new call sites of fchmod, but these new call
sites check the return value. The test suite can't get past t0001
without a dozen or so failures.

Just fake that the call was successful even though it did nothing.
