 Thanks, I'll apply the patch.

 BTW, it's possible to compile some test binaries by:

    make -C libmount/src tests

 these programs are used in tests/ts/libmount regression tests.

 It would be nice to add valgrind (or so) to the tests and check for
 mem-leaks. (Ideally add some simple infrastructure to tests/
 and log valgrind output to "$TS_OUTPUT.mem".)  Volunteer? ;-)
