For some strange file, according to API description, we shouldn't check resolved_path as it is undefined.
To make the loop go on, we could use "continue" when we detect path is NULL.

       If there is no error, realpath() returns a pointer to the resolved_path.

       Otherwise it returns a NULL pointer, and the contents of the array resolved_path are undefined, and errno is set to indicate the error.
