Re: [lvm-devel] Detect unlikely write failure: persistent device cache, config file

There are a few more places where that was needed, and not all new
callers include config.h, so I've moved the close_stream definition
to lib.h.  Here's an updated patch:

Detect write failure more reliably.
 * lib/misc/lib.h (close_stream): New static inline function.
 * lib/config/config.c (write_config_file): Use the new function
 to detect and diagnose unlikely write failure.
 * lib/filters/filter-persistent.c (persistent_filter_dump): Likewise.
 * lib/format_text/archive.c (archive_vg): Likewise.
 * lib/format_text/format-text.c (_vg_write_file): Likewise.
 * lib/log/log.c (fin_log): Likewise.
 * WHATS_NEW: Mention this.

 Version 2.02.27 - 
 ================================
+  Detect write failure more reliably.
   Fix configure libdevmapper.h check when --with-dmdir is used.
   Turn _add_pv_to_vg() into external library function add_pv_to_vg().
   Add pv_by_path() external library function.
