OK, that being the case I have piggy-backed on the current pg_upgrade
tests in the same way that --wal-segsize did.

There are now three patches:

1) 01-pgresetwal-test

Adds a *very* basic test suite for pg_resetwal. I was able to make this
utility core dump (floating point errors) pretty easily with empty or
malformed pg_control files so I focused on WAL reset functionality plus
the basic help/command tests that every utility has.

2) 02-mkdir

Converts mkdir() calls to MakeDirectoryDefaultPerm() if the original
call used default permissions.

3) 03-group

Allow group access on PGDATA. This includes backend changes, utility
changes (initdb, pg_ctl, pg_upgrade, etc.) and tests for each utility.
