Data type "struct statfs" referred to in two different ways in the two manual
pages (I picked the one that looks less like a function.)

Description of return value from getfstat() sort of implies array (I made it
state that it was an array.)
read manual pages for statf(2) and getfstat(2)
patches for src/lib/libc/sys
