[New-bugs-announce] [issue15954] No error checking after using of the wcsxfrm()

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

The wcsxfrm() function may fail but there is no error check code.

I don't know what exception type should be used here: OSError with an errno EINVAL or some specialized type. I can't prepare tests, because I don't know under what conditions it would be possible error, and whether we can get it on any system at all without broking some internal unicode object invariants.
