map interruption of close by signal to success rather than EINPROGRESS
commit 82dc1e2e783815e00a90cd3f681436a80d54a314 addressed the resolution of Austin Group issue 529, which requires close to leave the fd open when failing with EINTR, by returning the newly defined error code EINPROGRESS. this turns out to be a bad idea, though, since legacy applications not aware of the new specification are likely to interpret any error from close except EINTR as a hard failure.
