I did not touch this code on purpose, due to the small risk of legacy
users that expect 524.

If you think the benefit outweighs the risk --the same conclusion
reached in the commits I mentioned, 2230a7ef5198 ("drop_monitor: Use
correct
error code") and commit 4a5cdc604b9c ("net/tls: Fix return values to
avoid ENOTSUPP")-- then I can support that.

But like those, I think the correct error code then is EOPNOTSUPP. And
the commit message would be stronger by explicitly referencing that
prior art, and the fact that those changes did not seem to cause problems.
