So if it will never hit on sysvX where x<=4 and sysv4 and sysv5 are
handled completely differently, are you saying that it hits only for
sysvX with x>6?  

I'm a  senior staffer of the trademark holder of "System V" and know
of no System V Release 6. :-)

I should have been clearer that I know less about it.   There was a Lynxos
for IA32 in the late 80's or early 90's that was approximately based on the
System V/386 sources (and therefore looked a lot like ISC)  but had 
realtime-ish things added.    There is a current Lynxos, but I think it's
more Linux-ish.   I don't know which this would match.

I can't recall having seen any reports/activity on this target, either.
