We give EINVAL when the request is invalid; here it's ok but merely the
user has insufficient privileges.  Thus, this return value reflects the
error better -- as discussed in the identical case for dedupe.

According to codesearch.debian.net, no userspace program distinguishes
these values beyond strerror().
