[fpc-devel] rtl_do_close is not called in the embedded and freertos targets

I was looking at the RTL code to see if the embedded target could be
used as a workaround for unsupported OSes (e.g. some custom kernel) and
noticed that there are some global function pointers used as callbacks
for system-specific functionality - which is neat.
However i also noticed that the do_close procedure in sysfile.inc
doesn't do anything (it is empty) and nothing calls the rtl_do_close
callback (the other do_xxx procedures do call the equivalent rtl_do_xxx
if they are set). I don't have any actual program to test that out, it
was just something i noticed by reading the code but it seems like a bug
to me as i can't see a way to close a file handle otherwise.
The code can be seen here:
My guess is that the code above should call rtl_do_close defined here:
...like it is done in the other procedures in the sysfile.inc file.
FWIW the code for freertos seems to be exactly the same - empty do_close
despite there being a rtl_do_close callback (which isn't used anywhere).
