When patching a class, mock.create_autospec() correctly detects properties and __slot__ attributes, but not subclasses of property() or other kinds of data descriptors.

The attached patch detects all data descriptors and patch them the way they should be.

Thanks! Is there a reason not to use inspect.isdatadescriptor() instead of _is_data_descriptor()?

Probably just Amaury and I forgetting that existed.  Amaury, inspect.isdatadescriptor's implementation is a bit different than this change's _is_data_descriptor.  Thoughts?

inspect.isdatadescriptor() is better indeed.
(I was initially working on an old version of which does not import inspect, and I did not want to add the dependency there).

- inspect uses hasattr(type(obj)) instead of hasatr(obj). This is better, (but does not work for 2.x old-style classes)

- my patch tested for __del__... this is completely wrong, it should have been __delete__. oops.
inspect.isdatadescriptor() does not test for __delete__. This is insaccurate, but I doubt it will ever matter. This is only possible for Python-defined descriptors, the C implementation always exposes both __set__ and __delete__ when tp_set is filled.

IOW, I'm happy with the current state.
