The code you cite from ogetdirentries() is *only* used when programs
use the old syscall number, and it is required for compatibility with
old (NetBSD 0.8-0.9, 386BSD, and BSD/386) executables.

The only time this would cause you trouble is if you rebuilt ld with a
new dir.h, but using an old libc (with the old syscall stub).
