find patch: allow -mode as synonym for -perm

Here's a tiny patch to allow "-mode" as a synonym for "-perm", just because 
it's such an obvious thing for people to try to call it, particularly 
because several of the other options resemble the names of the 
corresponding stat() elements (-uid, -gid, -mtime, -ctime, -atime).

In principle this takes away the option to use "-mode" for another purpose 
in future.  But I think that any other use would cause too much confusion, 
so it may as well be permitted for "-perm".
