Free- and OpenBSD have it too. For Solaris I've found a feature request
only. Dunno about MacOS/Darwin. Other un*xes which are important these
I'd *really* hate it to have the same system call with different
argument ordering on different systems though. Especially when swapping
two integer values, so gcc wouldn't error out on wrong usage.
