That sounds reasonable enough. As a work pattern for adding POSIX
APIs, it has worked best to assume you will have patches outstanding
for multiple APIs at the same time. While one is being reviewed, you
should work on the next.Sometimes the newer ones end up getting
wrapped up before the first ones posted.
Also all the new APIs require adding prototypes to newlib POSIX
headers. This means tool bumps which means it would be a good idea
to put together a patch to update the POSIX headers which are in
newlib to add the new APIs in a batch. This will mean a single bump
of the newlib version in the RSB which has a reasonable chance of working
for all the additions.
Adding methods as needed to the headers would be a fairly easy
step and is a prerequisite for a number of your planned methods.

It is in rtems-docs
I don't recall adding the new methods yet and someone internal
spotted a couple of minor mistakes so it looks like I will be updating
