It does not share any code with fstat(1), which is undesirable as any
further changes will have to be made to both fstat(1) and fuser(1).
PR standards/100017 has a better approach, putting fstat and fuser in
the same binary. If the filesystem support and algorithms need to be
improved, that can be done in fstat then.
This PR also points to two failed fuser(1) attempts.
