sys-fs/sysfsutils is broken and dead upstream. Dependency on it needs to be
removed so we can remove it from the tree.
lsparisc links to libsysfs.so:
elmer ~ # scanelf -n /usr/bin/lsparisc
TYPE NEEDED FILE
ET_EXEC libsysfs.so.2,libc.so.6 /usr/bin/lsparisc
What do you suggest I replace libsysfs.so with?
I'm not sure if this is feasible, but copy the required code from libsysfs.h to lsparisc.c, and link to nothing?
No, the upstream code needs to stop using libsysfs as it is broken and doesn't work at all.

Sure, I was working on assumption for the use that lsparisc has, that part of libsysfs still worked
But reading this, makes you wonder if lsparisc works at all, and maybe it should just get punted?
It works fine for the limited purpose lsparisc uses it for. I'll see if I can get upstream to do the work or get a decision to stop supporting it.
