[Bug libc/2450] New: readlink() return should be typed as ssize_t

tim@mr-dog.net
In the latest POSIX revision, readlink() is typed as
returning 'ssize_t'.  However, in glibc 2.4, it is still
typed as returning 'int'.  This should be changed.
Perhaps for consistency readlinkat() might be changed
as well *nd if so, then also in the Austin draft
spec for readlinkat()?).
