** @brief Wrap a function call to @a F such that it throws an error
** on negative return.
** A common strategy of libraries and also the Linux kernel is to
** return an @c int and signal an error with a negative value. The
** error code is then the negation of that return value. This wrapper
** makes this transparent such that it ensures that the error code is
** always checked, and if an error occurs the negated value is
** thrown.
** @return the value of the call to the function if that was
** successful. Never returns if it wasn't.
** @see P99_THROW_CALL_NEG for a similar macro that also checks if
** the return value is negative but that returns the value of @c
** errno, instead.
** @see P99_THROW_CALL_ZERO for a similar macro that checks if the
** return value is @c 0
** @see P99_THROW_CALL_VOIDP for a similar macro that checks a
** pointer return value
