I followed the previous discussions and reviewed the patch. With respect to the patch, I see few drawbacks in providing links to references like this:

`fcntl <>`_
`ioctl <>`_
`the POSIX specification +<>`_

these URLs can quickly become outdated and it will be an unnecessary detail for us to maintain.

Instead, I suggest we have references like :manpage:`fcntl(2)`, :manpage:`ioctl(2)` and :manpage:`termios(2)`, a supported directive by sphinx, so that users can quickly search for those and land up on relevant and latest documentation.
