The errno doesn't matter. ENODEV is my dirty habit.

It's used by just one test gem_seqno_wrap, which sets a value and then
expects the read to match after a batch. I incorporated the
seqno-wrapping check into gem_exec_whisper, which checks the
synchronisation and ordering of requests between engines across the
wrap. It has been very useful for detecting bugs.
