Subject: fdopen() doesn't check for valid fd

I've been verifying the behavior of an application between glibc and 
musl, and have noticed that the musl implementation of fdopen() assumes 
that the input fd is valid, whereas glibc does not. Per, it seems that 
fdopen() is allowed to fail with EBADF, so inside __fdopen(), the 
syscalls to SYS_fcntl and SYS_ioctl should probably check for an error, 
deallocate the FILE *, and return nullptr.
