The "not supported" errno situation seems to be a mess. There is an
ENOTSUP define in libc. ENOTSUP is usually defined to be EOPNOTSUPP
(taken from kernel), which in turn seems to have a different value
(95) than kernel's ENOTSUPP (524). Adding ENOTSUPP (with two Ps) to
libc would only add to the confusion. So it's kind of meh and I guess
people just moved on with workarounds.
