Hi,

 From a few patches of Pali and their subsequent discussions, it was 
clear that those types need to be documented (the most appropriate place 
being system_data_types(7), with link pages termios-struct(3) and 
termios2-struct(3)).

The most important part (the one we had problems with) being which 
headers should be included for each type (and for each version of the 
type (kernel/glibc)).  That includes the recommended header, and other 
headers that _shall_ also provide the type.

Is there someone that knows those types enough to write such 
documentation and wants to do it? :)

Thanks,

Alex
