        I found this bug by code inspection.

        When emulating /dev/fd, test_stat doesn't check for overflow
        when parsing the integer in /dev/fd/4294967296; this causes it
        to test the wrong file descriptor.  Also (and I think this is a nit)
        errno is set to the wrong value.

        * test.c (test_stat): When emulating /dev/fd/NNN, report
        ENOENT for files that are not open, not EBADF.  Check for
        overflow, so that we don't improperly succeed for
