[vlc-devel] In 2.1.x, how does access module report failure?

In 2.0.x access modules, the Block or Seek methods could set p_access->b_die if they detected a fatal I/O error on the input stream.    I see that in the git head (upcoming 2.1?) the b_die field has been removed, but looking at the code in src/input/stream.c I see no obvious way for a Block or Seek method to report failure.   What's the expected way to handle this situation?
