ssize_t getdirentries(int fd, char *buf, size_t nbytes , off_t *basep);
Read directory entries from the directory specified by fd into buf. At
most nbytes are read. Reading starts at offset *basep, and *basep is
updated with the new position after reading.
getdirentries returns the number of bytes read or zero when at the end
of the directory. If an error occurs, -1 is returned, and errno is set
