To add an example of what I mean you might end up defining "CLOCK_FD" to
indicate to use the fd in the struct, but given syscalls are trivial
codewise and would end up as

fclock_foo(int fd, blah)
clock = fd_to_clock(fd);
if (error)
return error
clock_do_foo(clock, blah);


clock_foo(int posixid, blah)
clock = posix_to_clock(posixid)
rest same

as wrappers it seems hardly worth adding ugly hacks
