relax directory checking for unix sockets.

I would like to create unix two sockets, one world-writeable, the other not, in the same directory, e.g., /var/lib/tor.

Currently, tor won't let me do that.

It'd be great if I could tell it to allow this action.

Code review:

This code looks like it works. It also simplifies some of the existing logic.

The log message that mentions "StrictDirModes" should probably say "RelaxDirModeCheck".

Thanks for the unit test. The unit tests could check that relaxing the directory mode check works. (And that no option and NoRelaxDirModeCheck do the check as they did in previous versions.)

As we are past the feature freeze date for 0.2.8, I'm tentatively placing this in 0.2.9. Please check with Nick if you think it should be in 0.2.8.

I think Yawning wrote the original code - at the very least, he understands unix sockets better than I do. I'd also like him to review it if he can.

Agreed wrt the log message; tests would be nice; I'd take this in 0.2.8 since it's pretty isolated, and since debian (I hear) might need it.

Keywords: must-fix-before-028-rc added

Marking these as must-fix-before-028-rc.

Actually, some of them may not need to get 'fixed' before the rc, but I believe that they should either get fixed, or we should have a good explanation of why they don't need to get fixed.
