We need to use the _ prefix due to this bug:

  dl_iterate_phdr namespace violation 

Not sure about moving to <link.h>.  The interface is a bit like dladdr,
and that lives in <dlfcn.h>.

<link.h> is not covered by standards, and we rarely use _GNU_SOURCE
conditionals in such headers.  The _ prefix is only needed because of
external linkage.
