they're the same, I didn't knew about these function.
By looking closer, the code in libutil is almost the same as found in
4.4Lite. It is however way bigger than the FreeBSD code:
% size libc/gen/strtofflags.o libutil/stat_flags.o
text data bss dec hex filename
706 168 0 874 36a libc/gen/strtofflags.o
3785 0 0 3785 ec9 libutil/stat_flags.o
maybe could the current code and FreeBSD/DragonFly version be merged.
Then creating an alias flags_to_string(3) <-> fflagstostr(3) to
support both API ?
