Now I'm told that OpenBSD has introduced "readdir" ops in libsa fs_ops:

And at least OpenBSD/zaurus uses these readdir ops for ls command:

I have not checked if their readdir() API can be applicable our
current ls implementation, but what do you think about this idea,
i.e. file system independent ls command using fs dependent readdir() ops?

readdir looks better as fs_ops, but if it requires too much
modification in our current implementation, ls in fs_ops
could be a interim workaround.

I'll take these tier II ports anyway. Thanks.
