Any linuxapp application using that function will fail to compile with this commit, despite this API being already present and declared as public.

No, i don't mean squashing these two patches into one. I mean, provide a
stub like for FreeBSD, and then edit it to be a proper implementation in
the next commit.
I.e. in this commit, add a stub that just returns 0, like for FreeBSD.
Next commit, instead of starting from scratch, start from this stub.
