There's a function 'notice_open_fds()' in gdbmonitor which does a file descriptor walk to find out which fds are in use. So, in this
situation it is expected that many of these 'fstat()' calls fail, but unfortunately this special use case of 'fstat()' triggers many
of these error messages which are usually helpful in other situations.
