There are a few more syscalls in the newest code which won't report errors
anymore but won't do anything, which will be in the next snapshot. The problem
is presumably that glibc is testing for existance but not usefulness of
syscalls and so it finds lots of which aren't implemented, when in reality it
would be nice if it ignored them. (The reason is, or was, some things needed
for SunOS and not for Linux)

In some cases the messages are harmless but annoying, in others we've
implemented things. I think those are fixed in what will be the next snapshot
