This interface seems awfully confused. Looking at occurrences in Debian
I can see all cases:

- passing the address of int x = FREAD (as apparently expected...)
- passing the address of int x = 0 (as apparently correctly interpreted

but also
- passing the address of int x = 1
- passing a NULL address
- not passing anything (!)

I'm starting to think that perhaps we should as well just comment the
#define TIOCFLUSH from the headers, since there are so many bogus
callers of the interface.
