/* 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.

   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.  */
