Looking at your references I haven't missed it. You are not deciding
anything as of yet to keep it simple. Except you are returning
EOPNOTSUPP. You are very much intending to do something.

Decide. Do you use the flags parameter or is the width of the
target depending on the flags.

That is fundamental to how the system call and it's extensions work.
That is fundamental to my review.

Until that is decided.

There are a lot of fundamental maintenance issues and you can very easily
get them wrong if you are not clear on the job of the file descriptor
and the job of the flags argument.

I want don't want new crap that we have to abandon that has a nasty set
of bugs because no one wanted to think through the system call all of
the way and understand the corner cases.
