I updated the debuginfod_*_query descriptions in debuginfod-support.h.

Done.

open_source_file relies on errno to communicate the reason for a missing
source file.

open_source_file also may call debuginfod_find_source.  It is possible
for debuginfod_find_source to set errno to a value unrelated to the
reason for a failed download.

This can result in bogus error messages being reported as the reason for
a missing source file.  The following error message should instead include
"No such file or directory":

  Temporary breakpoint 1, 0x00005555556f4de0 in main ()
  (gdb) list
  Downloading source file /usr/src/debug/glibc-2.36-8.fc37.x86_64/elf/<built-in>
  1       /usr/src/debug/glibc-2.36-8.fc37.x86_64/elf/<built-in>: Directory not empty.

Fix this by having open_source_file return a negative errno if it fails
to open a source file.  Use this value to generate the error message
instead of errno. Also add new function throw_sys_errmsg to facilitate
reporting this value.
