Since Linux 3.1, this system call no longer exists.  It has
been replaced by a set of files in the nfsd filesystem; see

     * These are the commands understood by nfsctl().

On success, zero is returned.  On error, −1 is returned, and
errno is set appropriately.

This system call was removed from the Linux kernel in
version 3.1.  Library support was removed from glibc in
version 2.28.

This call is Linux‐specific.
