_llseek - reposition read/write file offset
int _llseek(unsigned int fd, unsigned long offset_high,
unsigned long offset_low, loff_t *result,
unsigned int whence);
The _llseek() function repositions the offset of the open file associ-
ated with the file descriptor fd to (offset_high<<32) | offset_low
bytes relative to the beginning of the file, the current position in
the file, or the end of the file, depending on whether whence is
SEEK_SET, SEEK_CUR, or SEEK_END, respectively. It returns the result-
ing file position in the argument result.
Upon successful completion, _llseek() returns 0. Otherwise, a value of
-1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
EBADF fd is not an open file descriptor.
EFAULT Problem with copying results to user space.
EINVAL whence is invalid.
This function is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs
intended to be portable.
Glibc does not provide a wrapper for this system call; call it using
