Nope, you're not missing anything. It really is just a missing mapping
for EFBIG error. That's not one we've ever seen returned before (I guess
no one else tested us this way :-). Of course, looking in my POSIX spec
and in the Linux man page, there it is :-).

Now, the question is, what should it map to ? NT_STATUS_DISK_FULL doesn't
seem right as the disk isn't full.

Hmmm. Any suggestions or should I look through the NT_STATUS error codes
and see what matches best. Of course the best way would be to send the
equivalent call to W2K and see what NT_STATUS code it returns....
