    It's at least partially related to the kernel, and of general
    interest so I decided to send it to linux-kernel in addition to
    William R. Dieter directly.

    The Open Group makes the online version of 'The Single Unix
    Specification, Version 2' available freely on the Net from

    (The Open Group is the current owner of the Unix trademark)

    The Single Unix Specification, Version 2 is also known as Unix98, and
    is the successor to POSIX, XPG4 (aka Unix95!) and Spec1170.

    There are also some very interesting stuff under 'What is UNIX',
    including API tables with information about which API's are available
    from different standards, Command and utilities tables for different
    standards, etc etc...

    A cursory look through it found siginfo_t in signal.h, which provided
    a list of required members, with some text and several tables that
    provides more information about the requirements of siginfo_t.

    There are probably more corners in both the kernel and supporting
    utilities that should be checked against Unix98...
