     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS
     The getauid() function will fail if:

     [EFAULT]           A failure occurred while data transferred from the
                        kernel failed.

     [EPERM]            The process does not have sufficient permission to
                        complete the operation.
