Hi Julian and Daniel,

Thanks for the wonderful review! I've also included a few of Daniel's
suggestions (on IRC)- I hope I've got it right this time. I'm not sure
the volatile qualifier is necessary either- I'm just using it for
extra safety, making sure that no compiler optimizations mangle it.

[[[
Determine default perms in an elegant thread-safe way, not racily.

* subversion/libsvn_subr/io.c

  (default_perms_baton, perms_init_state): New struct, variable.

  (get_default_file_perms): Remove all functional code into
  init_default_file_perms, and use apr_atomic__init_once so that code
  is only executed once.

  (init_default_file_perms): New function to determine default file
  permissions by creating a temporary file and extracting permissions
  from it. Default permissions are not determined racily anymore,
  since this function is an apr_atomic__init_once callback.
