os.makedirs() can't create a directory with cleared write or list permission bits for owner when parent directories aren't created. This is because for parent directories same mode is used as for final directory.

Note that the mkdir utility creates parent directories with default mode (0o777 & ~umask).

$ mkdir -p -m 0 t1/t2/t3
$ ls -l -d t1 t1/t2 t1/t2/t3
drwxrwxr-x 3 serhiy serhiy 4096 Dec  7 22:30 t1/
drwxrwxr-x 3 serhiy serhiy 4096 Dec  7 22:30 t1/t2/

The proposed patch emulates the mkdir utility.
