/* Tries to link src to dst if both files exist and have the same
   contents.  If careful is false only the file sizes are compared; if
   it is true, the full contents are compared.

   This code assumes that dst cannot change behind our back -- the
   caller is supposed to protect it by a lock.  On the other hand, it
   does handle simultaneous access to src, but only if src is never
   modified in place.  It should also be safe over NFS.

   Assumes that rename cannot fail mid-way on a single filesystem.

   Returns 1 on success, 0 if the files are already linked, -1 for an
   error in errno, -2 if the files cannot be linked because they are not
   the same, on different devices, or on a filesystem with no support for
   hard links, -3 if there was a race condition, -4 if something unexpected
   happened. */
