    Upon successful completion, fileno() shall return the integer value of
the file descriptor associated with stream. Otherwise, the value -1 shall be
returned and errno set to indicate the error.


    The fileno() function may fail if:

        The stream argument is not a valid stream, or the stream is not
        associated with a file.

Isn't the above EBADF exactly what you are after?
