DESCRIPTION
     The sysdecode_enum	functions return a text	description of an integer
     value.  The text description matches the name of a	C macro	with the same
     value as the sole function	argument.  NULL	is returned if there is	no
     matching C	macro name.

     Most of these functions decode an argument	passed to a system call:

     Function			      System Call		 Argument
     sysdecode_acltype()	      acl_get_file(3)		 type
     sysdecode_atfd()		      openat(2)			 fd
     sysdecode_extattrnamespace()     extattr_get_fd(2)		 attrnamespace
     sysdecode_fadvice()	      posix_fadvise(2)		 advice
     sysdecode_fcntl_cmd()	      fcntl(2)			 cmd
     sysdecode_getfsstat_mode()	      getfsstat(2)		 mode
     sysdecode_idtype()		      procctl(2), waitid(2)
     sysdecode_kldsym_cmd()	      kldsym(2)			 cmd
     sysdecode_kldunload_flags()      kldunloadf(2)		 flags
     sysdecode_lio_listio_mode()      lio_listio(2)		 mode
     sysdecode_madvice()	      madvise(2)		 advice
     sysdecode_minherit_inherit()     minherit(2)		 inherit
     sysdecode_msgctl_cmd()	      msgctl(2)			 cmd
     sysdecode_nfssvc_flags()	      nfssvc(2)			 flags
     sysdecode_pathconf_name()	      pathconf(2)		 name
     sysdecode_prio_which()	      getpriority(2)		 which
     sysdecode_procctl_cmd()	      procctl(2)		 cmd
     sysdecode_ptrace_request()	      ptrace(2)			 request
     sysdecode_rlimit()		      getrlimit(2)		 resource
     sysdecode_rtprio_function()      rtprio(2)			 function
     sysdecode_getrusage_who()	      getrusage(2)		 who
     sysdecode_scheduler_policy()     sched_setscheduler(2)	 policy
     sysdecode_semctl_cmd()	      semctl(2)			 cmd
     sysdecode_shmctl_cmd()	      shmctl(2)			 cmd
     sysdecode_shutdown_how()	      shutdown(2)		 how
     sysdecode_sigprocmask_how()      sigprocmask(2)		 how
     sysdecode_sockopt_level()	      getsockopt(2)		 level
     sysdecode_sysarch_number()	      sysarch(2)		 number
     sysdecode_umtx_op()	      _umtx_op(2)		 op
     sysdecode_whence()		      lseek(2)			 whence

     These functions decode signal-specific signal codes stored	in the si_code
     field of the siginfo_t object associated with an instance of signal:

     Function			  Signal
     sysdecode_sigbus_code()	  SIGBUS
     sysdecode_sigchld_code()	  SIGCHLD
     sysdecode_sigfpe_code()	  SIGFPE
     sysdecode_sigill_code()	  SIGILL
     sysdecode_sigsegv_code()	  SIGSEGV
     sysdecode_sigtrap_code()	  SIGBTRAP

     Other functions decode the	values described below:

     sysdecode_ipproto()	   An IP protocol.

     sysdecode_sctp_pr_policy()	   A PR-SCTP policy.

     sysdecode_signal()		   A process signal.

     sysdecode_sockaddr_family()   A socket address family.

     sysdecode_socketdomain()	   A socket domain.

     sysdecode_vmresult()	   The return value of a function in the vir-
				   tual	memory subsystem of the	kernel indi-
				   cating the status of	the associated re-
				   quest.

RETURN VALUES
     The sysdecode_enum	functions return the name of a matching	C macro	or
     NULL if no	matching C macro was found.
