Bug #15199: scanf.rb broken with io from IO.pipe (MinGW or Windows?)

----------------------------------------
scanf.rb seems to be broken when using an io from a pipe.

The following code is used in IO#scanf:

link: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blob/d4b0efc010a45e904ecdad2dd74374b5c74e61e3/lib/scanf.rb#L661-L664

```ruby
begin
  seek(start_position + matched_so_far, IO::SEEK_SET)
rescue Errno::ESPIPE
end
```

if the rescue statement is replaced with:
```
rescue Errno::ESPIPE, Errno::EINVAL
```

It seems to work.  I assume at some point, a 'pipe' io raised an Errno::ESPIPE error when called with #seek, but trunk & 2.3 respond with Errno::EINVAL...
