I'm not sure why this would be an issue - the obvious way of reading
user.DOSATTRIB is to use sscanf into an int, and then check for the bits you're
interested in. The NT FILE_ATTRIBUTE_* values replicate and extend the FAT
constants used by DOS, so it shouldn't cause any confusion only exposing the
full 32-bit value.
