Hi Tim,

Indeed, it opens "/etc/mnttab", reads from it, then calls statfs() on
each file system. It may also call sysfs(). So, that's really the SVR3

I couldn't believe it, but they haven't improved this functionality in
30 years, and are still selling this for money!

OK, so let's keep SVR3 support in, but remove SVR2 and the other listed

And also AIX for PS/2, which was last released in 1992 [1].
