NAME

       oldfstat,  oldlstat,  oldstat,  oldolduname, olduname - obsolete system
       calls

SYNOPSIS

       Obsolete system calls.

DESCRIPTION

       The Linux 2.0 kernel implements these calls to support old executables.
       These  calls  return  structures  which  have  grown  since their first
       implementation, but  old  executables  must  continue  to  receive  old
       smaller structures.

       Current  executables  should be linked with current libraries and never
       use these calls.

CONFORMING TO

       These calls are unique to Linux and should not be used at  all  in  new
       programs.
