I've spoken with the folks who wrote the original versions of this patch,
and they are willing to incorporate these patches into the mainline
codebase. A quick glance at the other header files in src/ subdir shows
that they all are licensed under the GPL. So, I think these new files are
fine as they are licensed under the GPL as well.

That's really cool, can you tell us more about the license for these
patches ? There were previous mntent patches without the right license,
which could not be included in the main source tree, what about this one ?
To give you feedback, I should be able to try a compile in a few days on
Mac OSX 10.3.4 .
