Subject[patch 2/3] [man-pages] Remove "bufsize is not positive" from readlink(2) error section
The error statement "bufsize is not positive" is obsolete, if this proposed
syscall interface change get accepted.

Note: Kernel 2.6.27 and older shipped sys_readlink with a signed "bufsiz"
argument. Man-page document the readlink syscall always as unsigend (size_t).
