Yeah, I chose the boot time check because of hweight32()..

Good suggestion! Here is the updated patch.

Andrew, this patch relies on the newly introduced O_RANDOM and Eric's
FMODE_NONOTIFY.

fs: O_* bit numbers uniqueness check

The O_* bit numbers are defined in 20+ arch/*, and hence can silently
overlap. Add a boot time check to ensure the uniqueness as suggested
by David Miller.

v2: change to WARN_ON() as suggested by Roland
