Looking at this chunk and the s/err/errno/ change (that's a bug fix),
I spotted another small bug:

Any write error in networkEnableIpForwarding was ignored,
I added a check for failed close, too, just in case.

Subject: [PATCH] don't ignore write failure

* src/network_driver.c (networkEnableIpForwarding): This function
would always return 1 (success).  Now it returns 0 upon write or
close failure, being careful to preserve any errno from a write failure.
Add comments.
