Subject: [PATCH 2/2] Change protocol to send Linux errno from daemon to library.

This changes the protocol so that the Linux errno (if available)
is sent back to the library.  Note that the errno is not yet
made available to callers, since it is not clear how best to
present this Linux-specific number.
