Macros are easy. I've sent a patch long time ago which does essentially

#define rwxrwxrwx 0777
...

But then kernel will start using something nobode else does.

This whole issue is like sizeof(*ptr) vs sizeof(sizeof(struct S)).
No preferred way overall with ever vigilant checkpatch.pl guarding
kernel 24/7. :-)
