info libc says:
-- Macro: int ENOSYS
Function not implemented. This indicates that the function called
is not implemented at all, either in the C library itself or in the
operating system. When you get this error, you can be sure that
this particular function will always fail with `ENOSYS' unless you
install a new version of the C library or the operating system.
-- Macro: int ENOTSUP
Not supported. A function returns this error when certain
parameter values are valid, but the functionality they request is
not available. This can mean that the function does not implement
a particular command or option value or flag bit at all. For
functions that operate on some object given in a parameter, such
as a file descriptor or a port, it might instead mean that only
_that specific object_ (file descriptor, port, etc.) is unable to
support the other parameters given; different file descriptors
might support different ranges of parameter values.
If the entire function is not available at all in the
implementation, it returns `ENOSYS' instead.
note, i do not know if this is GNUs, POSIXs, ISOs or whoever elses
