consistently on the qemu vm, with the image downloaded from cdimage.d.o.

I think it can be reproduced by following snippets,

#include <errno.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>

int main() {
 char *s = "test";
 mkfifo(s, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR);
 open(s, O_WRONLY | O_NONBLOCK);
 return 0;

On linux, it prints "No such device or address";
On the hurd vm, it prints "Computer bought the farm".
