Hi Ulrich,

Pacemaker components (including lrmd) set umask when initializing
logging, using 0026 (S_IWGRP | S_IWOTH | S_IROTH).

I don't think resource agents that create files should rely on that;
it's a good idea for them to set umask according to their needs.
Pacemaker's umask might change in the future, and resource agents might
be called by some means other than Pacemaker.
