Perhaps, but I am not sure off hand anything is in fact using it and other
solutions are definitely preferable to that one.  Until you have another OS
running on shmedia and have strace support for that OS's syscalls too, then
I would prefer to leave this out (especially if you really had to tweak the
data structure as you did).  It is doubtful it will ever be useful, and
it's only my pedantic nature that prevents me from saying that it is in
fact completely obsolete.

Certainly.  I just wanted to make sure that we got now everything that is
available now.
