bindresvport - bind a socket to a privileged IP port
bindresvport() is used to bind the socket referred to by the file descriptor
sockfd to a privileged anonymous IP port, that is, a port number arbitrarily selected from the range 512 to 1023.
sin can be NULL, in which case
sin->sin_family is implicitly taken to be AF_INET. However, in this case, bindresvport() has no way to return the port number actually allocated. (This information can later be obtained using getsockname(2).)
bindresvport() returns 0 on success; otherwise -1 is returned and
errno set to indicate the cause of the error.
The calling process was not privileged (on Linux: the calling process did not have the CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE capability in the user namespace governing its network namespace).
All privileged ports are in use.
sin is not NULL and
sin->sin_family is not AF_INET.

|bindresvport()||Thread safety||glibc >= 2.17: MT-Safe
glibc < 2.17: MT-Unsafe
The bindresvport() function uses a static variable that was not protected by a lock before glibc 2.17, rendering the function MT-Unsafe.
Not in POSIX.1. Present on the BSDs, Solaris, and many other systems.
Unlike some bindresvport() implementations, the glibc implementation ignores any value that the caller supplies in
