Yes, but the xv6 book from MIT is something that I can't change, and I
want to keep their goals of a minimalist OS.

I've just committed a change where the syscall is now called _Fstat(),
and I've written a fstat() function to convert the minimal struct stat
into a more POSIX stat structure.

I don't want to use this list as the discussion area for the project.
I'll set another one up and we can move the conversation there.

Cheers, Warren
