_llseek - reposition read/write file offset
The _llseek() system call repositions the offset of the open file description associated with the file descriptor
fd to the value
(offset_high << 32) | offset_low
This new offset is a byte offset relative to the beginning of the file, the current file offset, or the end of the file, depending on whether
whence is SEEK_SET, SEEK_CUR, or SEEK_END, respectively.
The new file offset is returned in the argument
result. The type
loff_t is a 64-bit signed type.
This system call exists on various 32-bit platforms to support seeking to large file offsets.
Upon successful completion, _llseek() returns 0. Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned and
errno is set to indicate the error.
fd is not an open file descriptor.
Problem with copying results to user space.
whence is invalid.
This function is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to be portable.
