    I prefer SuS fpathconf(), pathconf() is just a wrapper to fpathconf();

    IMHO like sysconf - which is clearly a userland (libc) thing - fpathconf
    should be also a userland thing.

    long int fpathconf(int fildes, int name);
    long int pathconf(const char *path, int name);

    I still think that ioctl is the easiest and best way and to add
    another syscall is a bad idea.
