This patch increases robustness when migrating to a file with
two little changes:

 (1) Before closing the migration file handle checks if it happens to be
     a regular file and if so it issues a fsync.  This way the data is
     flushed to disk before qemu sends the migration completed event.
 (2) It adds error checking.  In case either fsync or close syscall
     fails pass up the error (and fail migration).

return -error, please.
Trying to get all callers to check the error returns.  (and yes, none of
the close calls check for errors on close)
