Attaching simple tests for these functions, which aren't currently tested.

Can you qualify the OSError except by checking it's errno?

I'm not quite sure what you mean, but the man page for FreeBSD 5.3 specifies EPERM for an unprivileged user and EINVAL for an attempt to create something other than a device node.  POSIX requires creating a FIFO to work for any user, and just says that EINVAL is for an "invalid argument".

OK, these patches work on FreeBSD 5.3 (root and non-root) if you want to check the errno.  I don't know what other systems might return though.  I did also find that the 2.x tests were failing on cleanup because the test class used os.unlink rather than support.unlink (which ignores missing files) as its 3.x counterpart does, so I've updated the patch to change that as well.

The 3.x patches work fine for me under Mandriva Linux.
