I completely  agree.  Just would like to understand this point:

  struct statmnt *statmnt(u64 mntid, u64 mask, unsigned int flags);

What's not properly typed about this interface?

I guess the answer is that it's not a syscall interface, which will
have an added [void *buf, size_t bufsize], while the buffer sizing is
done by a simple libc wrapper.

Do you think that's a problem?  If so, why?
