Why is the multiprocessing module, ie., multiprocessing/process.py, in
Technically it is feasible that stdin could have been replaced with
something other than a file object, where the replacement doesn't have
a fileno() method.
In that sort of situation an AttributeError would be raised, which
isn't going to be caught as either OSError or ValueError, which is all
the code watches out for.
