you attributed to linux in a long list of SVr1 ones... what were 72

As the comment indicates, EDOTDOT came from "RFS" - the almost never used "remote file system" that was (optionally, I think) part of System V Release 3.

As best I can recall, that is also where several of the other error numbers in the 72 - 79 range probably came from.
