mkdir -m and -p interaction

When running mkdir with -m and -p options, the specified mode is not
honored for parent directories.  This is consistent with the
documentation, but it strikes me as a bit bogus.  Is there a reason
for this behavior?  It is easy to work around but the existing
behavior seems less useful than honoring the mode for parents.
