Sorry. I thought the constant values were likely to be OS specific. I
intended the
structure and call to be available based on the XSI/POSIX version.

It really isn't there on Cygwin so if you want to make it RTEMS
specific, I don't
mind.  I don't know if the rule is let it compile but not link with
newlib for
methods in .h files that are defined by the standard.
