/*
* Write a packetized stream, where each line is preceded by
* its length (including the header) as a 4-byte hex number.
* A length of 'zero' means end of stream (and a length of 1-3
* would be an error).
*
* This is all pretty stupid, but we use this packetized line
* format to make a streaming format possible without ever
* over-running the read buffers. That way we'll never read
* into what might be the pack data (which should go to another
* process entirely).
*
* The writing side could use stdio, but since the reading
* side can't, we stay with pure read/write interfaces.

* Read a packetized line into the buffer, which must be at least size bytes
* long. The return value specifies the number of bytes read into the buffer.
*
* If src_buffer and *src_buffer are not NULL, it should point to a buffer
* containing the packet data to parse, of at least *src_len bytes. After the
* function returns, src_buf will be incremented and src_len decremented by the
* number of bytes consumed.
*
* If src_buffer (or *src_buffer) is NULL, then data is read from the
* descriptor "fd".
*
* If options does not contain PACKET_READ_GENTLE_ON_EOF, we will die under any
* of the following conditions:
*
* 1. Read error from descriptor.
*
* 2. Protocol error from the remote (e.g., bogus length characters).
*
* 3. Receiving a packet larger than "size" bytes.
*
* 4. Truncated output from the remote (e.g., we expected a packet but got
* EOF, or we got a partial packet followed by EOF).
*
* If options does contain PACKET_READ_GENTLE_ON_EOF, we will not die on
* condition 4 (truncated input), but instead return -1. However, we will still
* die for the other 3 conditions.
*
* If options contains PACKET_READ_CHOMP_NEWLINE, a trailing newline (if
* present) is removed from the buffer before returning.
