/* Assuming the current directory is FD, get the symbolic link value
   of FILENAME as a null-terminated string and put it into a buffer.
   If FD is AT_FDCWD, FILENAME is interpreted relative to the current
   working directory, as in openat.

   If the link is small enough to fit into BUFFER put it there.
   BUFFER's size is BUFFER_SIZE, and BUFFER can be null
   if BUFFER_SIZE is zero.

   If the link is not small, put it into a dynamically allocated
   buffer managed by ALLOC.  It is the caller's responsibility to free
   the returned value if it is nonnull and is not BUFFER.  A null
   ALLOC stands for the standard allocator.

   The PREADLINKAT function specifies how to read links.  It operates
   like POSIX readlinkat()
   <http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/readlink.html>
   but can assume that its first argument is the same as FD.

   If successful, return the buffer address; otherwise return NULL and
   set errno.  */
