If you want to contribute to others involved in similar work (porting
RTL/unit system to a new platform) in the future, you can add the
missing descriptions on our (unfinished) wiki page related to this
topic - see http://wiki.freepascal.org/System_unit_structure. I and
other core team members are certainly willing to correct / extend
your descriptions and answer any remaining questions you'd have after
viewing some implementation of those routines (and checking
functionality of the used API calls for the particular target
platform if not known by you from the top of your head) and trying to
describe them. This way the description becomes available for others,
not just you.
