[PATCH] make libdiskfs handle _PC_PATH_MAX

currently, querying (f)pathconf() for _PC_PATH_MAX return -1 and sets 
errno = EINVAL. At least to my reading of pathconf() in POSIX, when a 
variable has no limit pathconf() for it should return -1 and not change 
errno. For example:
  $ getconf PATH_MAX .
  getconf: pathconf: .: Invalid argument
fpathconf() just queries the translator which handles the specified 
path, so the fix I thought about is to make the io_pathconf() reply in 
libdiskfs handle _PC_PATH_MAX too among the other cases of "set -1 and 
return 0".

With the applied path, I correctly get:
  $ getconf PATH_MAX .
