The 'bitset' module accesses an undefined errno in two situations:
1) After calling fread() that reads fewer elements than requested,
   and after calling ferror(), the value of errno is undefined.[1][2]
2) After calling fclose() on native Windows, the value of errno is undefined.

This patch fixes it.

	bitset: Don't access errno when it's not set.
	* lib/bitset/stats.c (bitset_stats_read): Don't use errno after neither
	fread() nor ferror() has set it. On native Windows, don't use errno
	after fclose().
