I have no POSIX spec of any kind, so I'd appreciate if someone looks
my question up.

What should a F_UNLCK fcntl SET_LK op return if we're unlocking a non-locked
area?  NetBSD, SVR3 & SVR4 returns 0 and just ignores the op.  Linux returns
EINVAL.  Who is right, in terms of POSIX-compliance?  If you got an answer
please refer to chapter & verse of some POSIX doc.

BTW, is any version of POSIX specs available publicly on-line?
