Discussion:

Addresses: filesys.ts

create_directory should refer to perms::all instead of the Posix S_IRWXU|S_IRWXG|S_IRWXO.

[2014-02-28 Beman provided proposed wording.]

Proposed resolution:

Effects: Establishes the postcondition by attempting to create the directory p resolves to, as if by POSIX mkdir() with a second argument of S_IRWXU|S_IRWXG|S_IRWXO static_cast<int>(perms::all). Creation failure because p resolves to an existing directory shall not be treated as an error.
