SubjectRe: [PATCH] fread does not return negative on error

The patch looks good, and both of our in-tree users do error out when the
returned value is 0 (imap-send.c checks with "<= 0" which looks a tad
amateurish, though) correctly.

Funny, there is no caller of this function in the original context this
bug originally found, which I think is linux-2.6/tools/perf ;-).

Thanks.
