Missing SCO XENIX system calls for the 286 dev sys

    Any 286 SCO XENIX 2.3.2 users left?

	I have managed to generate some of the following system calls:

		1) select
		2) statfs
		3) mkdir
		4) rmdir
		5) poll

    I have tested all of these except poll.
	Select was tested with ECU and Siotools. 
	Statfs was tested with du that posted to comp.sources.misc recently.
	Mkdir and rmdir have been tested in numerous programs.

	If anybody has some useful code they could part with for poll, I could
test that also.

	What I have done is generate a generic template for MASM. As far as
I can tell, I have done this the way the other system calls were already
implemented, and the assembled code is identical.

	If there is any interest, I will post the fixes source and all.

	There are probably other calls still missing that I have overlooked, and
I would appreciate any input on this subject.
	I have no access to a 386 system to compare against so I'm shooting from
the hip so to speak.

	I got sick and tired of SCO's attitude towards the 286 systems, and did
this out of desparation. (I NEED these calls, DAMIT!)

	All indications from SCO are simply: The 286 dev sys is dead.

	I find this completely unacceptable.
