Hi Laurent. It's been a while. :)

I'm updating my packages to catch up with skalibs, gcc warnings, etc.,
and fd_close() returning void is one of the changes that hit me.
Looking over past discussions, I agree that POSIX is a mess
here--nevertheless, given that close() is the way it is, I think it's
best for fd_close() to report errors other than EINTR to the caller.
What do you think?
