One example in the NetBSD tree is b*() vs. mem*() -- mem*() are the
POSIX interfaces, and are the 'right' things to use in user-land code,
but the b*() interfaces are what have been used in the kernel forever
and, last i heard, there was no great desire to change that.
Actually, that's not true. This has been on my List for a long time,
and I've certainly mentioned it before. However, with all the other
kernel changes going on right now, this is not a good time to do it.
