I agree. We should just fix this.

As Willem points out the use of this error code has spread, but in
theory I'm a co-maintainer of the TLS code now, and my maintainer
gut says "just fix it" :)

FWIW I did a quick grep through openssl and gnutls and fbthrift and I
see no references to ENOTSUPP or 524.

Valentin, what's the strategy you're using for this fix? There's a
bunch of ENOTSUPP in net/tls/tls_sw.c as well, could you convert those,
too?
