Otoh, I'm not sure whether it is a good idea to expose
such a platform dependant function to an abstract
environment. (It certainly does not belong into a
"Posix" namespace.) This will only lead to unportable
C## programs. But this was the decision of the mono

In that case it is a wrapper for C# programs running
in the mono VM. The programs using that call are yet
