Use @IgnoreError on functions that don't need errno #6

For correctness, jnr-ffi saves the native value of errno after each function call, even if the function doesn't fail (since jnr-ffi cannot discern failure vs success of a native call).

For functions that don't set the native errno value on failure (not sure if sodium sets errno or not), you can turn off this feature to reduce the per-call overhead.

e.g. this is getpid from jnr-posix

@IgnoreError int getpid();

You can also use that annotation on the library interface if none of the functions sets errno.
