You don't _WANT_ to listen, do you? Andi told you many times, that
this is an Linux 2.1+ API. RH 5.2 is a 2.0 distribution. Of course,
there is no man page in it for this. It's almost three years
old. There are from this particular vendor, _FIVE_ newer distributions.
What do you want to tell us? That you're living in the past?

Please stop constructing cases. Linux did move on slightly in the last
three years. Maybe some other OSes didn't.
