Sadly, apr_errno.h does not define the APR_STATUS_IS_EPERM() macro.
Meaning, we *always* define APR_STATUS_IS_EPERM() in io.c, which
requires that EPERM be available for a meaningful definition to be

I'm not a fan of relying on apr_errno.h's hidden inclusion of errno.h,
and would prefer an explicit include (as we used to do). I don't have
a preference as to where this happens, though Max Bowsher suggested
moving it down to after the inclusion of apr_errno.h.

That said, I don't see us including errno.h explicitly anywhere else
in the code base. We only include apr_errno.h, but do reference
variables declared by errno.h, so there's certainly plent of precedent
for Mike's approach.
