This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example:
explain_connect_or_die(fildes, serv_addr, serv_addr_size);
The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the connect(2) system call.
The serv_addr, exactly as to be passed to the connect(2) system call.
The serv_addr_size, exactly as to be passed to the connect(2) system call.
