Such an API can be used for both os.closerange and subprocess, re-using much of os_closerange_impl. Pull request enroute.

bpo-40422: create a common _Py_closerange API (GH-19754)

Python/fileutils.c might be a better home for such helper function.

You might move _Py_BEGIN_SUPPRESS_IPH / _Py_END_SUPPRESS_IPH macros into _Py_closerange(), even if currently it makes no diffence. (_Py_BEGIN_SUPPRESS_IPH is specific to Windows, os.closerange() uses it, and _posixsubprocess doesn't need it since it's not used on Windows.)

See also the idea of reminding if the kernel supports the syscall or not:

Would you like that on a distinct issue, or is it ok to reuse this BPO since it's a location improvement of an API just introduced?

I've got a local branch now that:

1. moves the suppress IPH stuff into _Py_closerange
2. moves the definition into Python/fileutils.c
3. moves the declaration into Include/fileutils h

Just reuse this bpo issue.  I'll mark the PRs as "skip news"; don't worry about a new news blurb entry as it's all tied to the original one.

Excellent, thank you.
