fix the documentation or fix the implementation ?

The documentation. The implementation can't be exactly the same between
kernel and userland for this kind of functions, because in kernel we have
to return an errno.h value, while in userland the traditionnal way to go
it to return a boolean, and get the error number from a global variable
if we care.

FWIW I am currently clarifying this API divergence with Manuel. We should have something ready in a day or two. Stay tuned.
