Illumos name-value pair library
libnvpair is a name-value pair library originating from Solaris
The nvpair library was released in OpenSolaris and has been extended by the Illumos project. It exports a set of functions used for managing name-value pairs. This is a base library for Solaris and its descendents. However, the kernel-specific code has been removed thus libnvpair is strictly meant for the userland. The XDR functionality has been masked for now due to RPC differences between *BSD and Illumos.
