In addition to Chris's comment, I'd like to point out that this function
should be as streamlined for speed as possible (it can potentially get
called a lot)..

__check_invalid_read_ptr_errno (const void *s, unsigned sz)
  if (s && !IsBadReadPtr ((void *) s, sz))
    return 0;

  set_errno (EFAULT);
  return EFAULT;

is probably better. (I've been doing a little code tuning research
recently. One thing that stood out was that if() tests should have the
most common branch as the {}, and drop through to the least common

In some cases that would result in ridiculously deep embedded if() {if
() {}} constructs, but for issues where performance matters it's
probably worth it.
