I thought I read just about all NetBSD mailing list, but here, out of the blue,
appears three new system calls.  I can't remember seeing any discussion
about them, anywhere.  But maybe my memory is failing.

I presume they are "necessary", because don't we all dislike bloat?
Could someone explain to me what they do, and why we need them.
