 When an access return an error, stream_t will handle it as a transitory
error and never as a fatal one (that's why it will retry a bit latter).

 The best way for now, is that on fatal error you just act like an EOF
(as you won't return anymore data)
 I am not sure but I think you can continue to return a negative value as
long as you set p_access->info.b_eof to true to warn stream that you will
never recover from that error.
