Subject: [PATCH 1/7] lei: allow more mbox inode types
Date: Wed, 20 Jan 2021 14:04:43 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210120050449.71330-2-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210119093435.17955-1-e@80x24.org>

We may attempt to write an mbox to any terminal, block, or
character device, not just regular files and FIFOs/pipes.
The only thing that is known to not work is a directory.

Sockets may be possible with some OSes (e.g. Plan 9) or
filesystems.  This fixes t/lei.t on FreeBSD 11.x
