A) how do you know there isn't another file opened in the fd_table that
have the same id of the file opened in your own fd_table?

B) We just pass the call down to the system. It is the operating system
job to return an error if the fd is not really open, it's not a samba

C) You must implement your module as OPAQUE in your case. With type
opaque calls are not forwarded to the operating system but dies in your
module, as forwardnig them to the operating system just make no sense at
