I asked a few other developers last night, getdirentries() is only
present for binary compatibility with old binaries.  There shouldn't
be a prototype for it in dirent.h (or anywhere else).

Really the code should use opendir() etc (which are the posix functions).
I've not looked at what wine is doing here, but the value returned by
lseek() for directories isn't necessarily a byte offset.
