But a syscall can't easily be used by any applications until it's in glibc
or some other library, and once it is you can't change it because it's
exposed to applications so you can't tell who might be using it.
(Most of these new syscalls are Linux-specific, anyway, and thus likely to
see comparatively little use outside of abstraction layers like glibc.
POSIX still remains king.)
