Detailed Description

       If the application wants to directly talk to the braille terminal, it should use Raw Mode.
       In this special mode, the driver gives the whole control of the terminal to it: brltty
       doesn't work any more.

       For this, it simply has to call brlapi_enterRawMode(), then brlapi_sendRaw() and
       brlapi_recvRaw(), and finally give control back thanks to brlapi_leaveRawMode().

       Special care of the terminal should be taken, since one might completely trash the
       terminal's data, or even lock it! The application should always check for terminal's type
       thanks to brlapi_getDriverName().

       The client can also make brltty close the driver by using brlapi_suspendDriver(), and
       resume it again with brlapi_resumeDriver(). This should not be used if possible: raw mode
       should be sufficient for any use. If not, please ask for features :)

       Parameters:
           buffer points on a buffer where the function will store the received data;
           size holds the buffer size.

       Returns:

       Parameters:
           driver Specifies the name of the driver which will be suspended.

       Returns:
           -1 on error
