for files whose type cannot be determined solely from st_mode:
'F' semaphore
'M' migrated file (Cray DMF)
'Q' message queue
'S' shared memory object
'T' typed memory object
1 'r' if the owner may read, '-' otherwise.
2 'w' if the owner may write, '-' otherwise.
3 'x' if the owner may execute, 's' if the file is
set-user-id, '-' otherwise.
'S' if the file is set-user-id, but the execute
bit isn't set.
4 'r' if group members may read, '-' otherwise.
5 'w' if group members may write, '-' otherwise.
6 'x' if group members may execute, 's' if the file is
set-group-id, '-' otherwise.
'S' if it is set-group-id but not executable.
7 'r' if any user may read, '-' otherwise.
8 'w' if any user may write, '-' otherwise.
9 'x' if any user may execute, 't' if the file is "sticky"
(will be retained in swap space after execution), '-'
'T' if the file is sticky but not executable.
10 ' ' for compatibility with 4.4BSD strmode,
since this interface does not support ACLs.
