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.
