PyPy compat: call termios functions on file descriptors, not file objects

This patch fixes an incompatibility between Django dev and pypy 1.6. The functions from termios are documented to use file descriptors, although CPython accepts both file descriptors and file objects. Django's file object is confusingly named fd.

  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Design decision needed

Is there a compelling reason not to consider this a bug in PyPy (despite the documentation flail upstream)? I suspect it's as simple of a change there as it is for us.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Just found in the CPython docs, right at the top "All functions in this module take a file descriptor fd as their first argument. This can be an integer file descriptor, such as returned by sys.stdin.fileno(), or a file object, such as sys.stdin itself." Going to close this and fix in PyPy itself.
