I think it's a bad idea to have the same parameters copied over and over throughout the code with slight variations (e.g. 0600 vs S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR) but the same intent. In all cases there is another version of the function (added by this patch) that accepts a mode parameter. In practice this was only needed in one place, be_lo_export(). I think this makes a pretty good argument for standardization/simplification in other areas.
