 * string_unescape - unquote characters in the given string
 * @src:	source buffer (escaped)
 * @dst:	destination buffer (unescaped)
 * @size:	size of the destination buffer (0 to unlimit)
 * @flags:	combination of the flags (bitwise OR):
 *	%UNESCAPE_SPACE:
 *		'\f' - form feed
 *		'\n' - new line
 *		'\r' - carriage return
 *		'\t' - horizontal tab
 *		'\v' - vertical tab
 *	%UNESCAPE_OCTAL:
 *		'\NNN' - byte with octal value NNN (1 to 3 digits)
 *	%UNESCAPE_HEX:
 *		'\xHH' - byte with hexadecimal value HH (1 to 2 digits)
 *	%UNESCAPE_SPECIAL:
 *		'\"' - double quote
 *		'\\' - backslash
 *		'\a' - alert (BEL)
 *		'\e' - escape
 *	%UNESCAPE_ANY:
 *		all previous together
 *
 * Returns amount of characters processed to the destination buffer excluding
 * trailing '\0'.
 *
 * Because the size of the output will be the same as or less than the size of
 * the input, the transformation may be performed in place.
 *
 * Caller must provide valid source and destination pointers. Be aware that
 * destination buffer will always be NULL-terminated. Source string must be
 * NULL-terminated as well.
