That should work and is in line with my understanding of the current
code for pathconf in glibc.

If we're going to be changing statfs (or adding a new system call)
anyway, that does seem like a reasonable place to export this data
along with whatever else gets added. With the various things that
have been suggested, maybe we need something more like the stat
replacement that has been getting discussed with the room for some
larger optional fields and a way to request a specific set of fields.
