Looked into this. The kernel and GLIBC are not in sync. So maybe we still use
EINVAL here?

Yu-cheng



In kernel:
----------

#define EOPNOTSUPP 95
#define ENOTSUPP 524

In GLIBC:
---------

printf("ENOTSUP=%d\n", ENOTSUP);
printf("EOPNOTSUPP=%d\n", EOPNOTSUPP);
printf("%s=524\n", strerror(524));

ENOTSUP=95
EOPNOTSUPP=95
Unknown error 524=524
