New submission from Christian Heimes:

Related to #11016
I like to deprecate the S_IF* constants in favor of the S_IS*() functions.


No new S_IFMT symbolic names for the file type values of mode_t will be defined by POSIX.1-2008; if new file types are required, they will only be testable through S_ISxx() or S_TYPEISxxx() macros instead.
