/* A gross hack to work around a bug in FreeBSD.
In the following sequence, read(2) returns
bogus data:
write(2) 1022 bytes
write(2) 954 bytes, get EAGAIN
read(2) 1024 bytes in process_read_output
read(2) 11 bytes in process_read_output
That is, read(2) returns more bytes than have
ever been written successfully. The 1033 bytes
read are the 1022 bytes written successfully
after processing (for example with CRs added if
the terminal is set up that way which it is
here). The same bytes will be seen again in a
later read(2), without the CRs. */

Arrange to relocate BUF. */
