os_libcall - call a function in a dynamic loadable library

an example of calling a function that takes a string and returns an int:

int int_out = 0; os_libcall("mylib.so", "somefn", "string-argument", 0, NULL, &int_out);

libnamethe name of the library to load (e.g.: libsomething.so)
funcnamethe name of the library function (e.g.: myfunc)
argvthe input string, NULL when using argi
argithe input integer, not used when using argv != NULL
[out]str_outan allocated output string, caller must free if not NULL. NULL when using int_out.
[out]int_outthe output integer param
true on success, false on failure
