Well I tried that (works correctly: nothing happens on `snooze -f` except 
a "Devices rejected sleep" log from the kernel).

Nope, still the same error.
Strace relevant bit:
fcntl64(5, F_GETFL)                     = 0x2 (flags O_RDWR)

Which made me read the code and fcntl's manpage, in which I found your calls were looking strange... (It says, amongst other things:

       int fcntl(int fd, int cmd);
       int fcntl(int fd, int cmd, long arg);

F_GETFL Read the file descriptor's flags.
F_SETFL Set the file status flags part of the descriptor's flags to  the
        value  specified by arg.  

       F_GETFL  Value of flags.

The attached patch makes pmud function again for me (tested with -d and with Batmon).
Could this be due to some changes in fcntl's lib (glibc i guess) ?
