    It's EACCES :-) Note that it (*) says for EINVAL and ERANGE: "If any of
    the following conditions occur, [...]". Considering that 2.4, paragraph
    says an implementation may _not_ detect certain conditions, this seems
    to imply that an implementation is allowed not to check for EACCES.

    So this looks good.
