Subject: Possible oversight in setvbuf()

Hi all,

ungetc() seems to depend on f->buf pointing UNGET bytes into a valid
array. fdopen() will provide such a thing. However, setvbuf() will set
f->buf to the very start of the user provided buffer. Bizarrely, UNGET
is deducted from the buffer size, but not added to the pointer.
Oversight or intentional?
