New submission from Xavier de Gaye:

User ids on android are the ids of the applications and they are used to enforce the applications access rights.  See the 'User IDs and File Access' section at http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/security/permissions.html.

Most integers are existing user ids on android. This may explain why getpwall() is missing.
Patch attached.
