oldfstat, oldlstat, oldstat, oldolduname, olduname - obsolete system calls
Obsolete system calls.
The Linux 2.0 kernel implements these calls to support old executables.
These calls return structures which have grown since their
but old executables must continue to receive old smaller structures.
Current executables should be linked with current libraries and never
use these calls.
These calls are unique to Linux and should not be used at all in new programs.
