Glibc 2.23 and earlier:
The unlockpt() function unlocks the slave pseudoterminal device corresponding to the master pseudoterminal referred to by the file descriptor fd.
unlockpt() should be called before opening the slave side of a pseudoterminal.
When successful, unlockpt() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns -1 and sets errno appropriately.
unlockpt() is provided in glibc since version 2.1.
