right :)

I haven't thought at all of the side effects of letting the user
return a random error code.
I have the impression that anything below EHWPOISON (133) is
relatively safe. So maybe we should just make sure the error code is
below 134?

The ERESTARTSYS has a few warnings in the include file, so I guess the
side effects might be too much for what we want to deal with.

Cheers,
Benjamin
