Description

I wonder if it would not be more appropriate to let

cpukit/libfs/src/deviceio.c:device_lseek()

execute rtems_set_errno_and_return_minus_one( ESPIPE )

rather than doing nothing and returning 0 (success).

No. 4.9.2 did not fix this.

However, the HEAD (to become 4.10) follows recommendation #2 and returns the current offset. Thus lseek() should work fine (seekable devices only!)
