My recollection is pretty rusty, but basically it's what happens when
paranoia gives up trying a given read.  (You can set
PARANOIA_MODE_NEVERSKIP to keep this from happening.)  In short, it
tries its best to fill in the "skipped" area with previously read data
that's likely to belong in the skipped region.

I'm not sure.  I haven't looked carefully at how paranoia handles
negative sector numbers.
