True that. :)

Ok,  I did a little research to find out the system calls that are
missing a group. And I found some calls that can be made into groups.
They are as follows.

1) Timer and Clock type. This group will include all the system calls
that create per-process timers, and the ones that work on clocks.
Example : timer_* and clock_*. May be others also.

2) Another one that can be added, which Dmitry suggested in the
beginning was all system calls dealing with uid and gid.

3) The last one which I noticed that can be added are the system calls
which deal with scheduler. sched_* system calls.

NOTE: If there are any suggestions, please feel free to comment. :)
