This PR begs a question:
should every system call manual page list every possible
error that can be returned by that call?
For example, this means that any system call dealing with a
descriptor (file, socket, whatever) would need to list all filesystem
error codes, plus all socket (network) error codes, and so on. It
would be a fairly exhaustive list.
If we decide "yes" then we need to go through section 2 pretty thoroughly.
The alternative is to list the error codes in one place, and give a
general description of when to expect them, with pointers to the
right subset from each system call man page.
Or we could just say UTSL with a pointer to /usr/include/errno.h
