src/utils/common.c is supposed to be mostly platform independent
functionality while platform/operating system specific functionality
would be in src/utils/os_*.c. This function seems to be in that latter
category and I'd assume it would have quite different behavior on
Windows, for example, and maybe not even applicable for that case to
meet the patch 2/2 need.
