I have to take a look when I'm back to office (weekend \o/) - but I expect
it's a string or a bitfield.

Currently we think about hacking sg_fs_stats in another direction.
Probably I already said - we plan to use libstatgrab in an snmpd for
real-time monitoring (see first prototype and required patches to snmp++
and agent++ libraries in http://www.netbsd.org/~sno/agent++/).

sg_get_fs_stats could block our update routine when a network filesystem
is encountered. So we think about splitting it into two routines and fill the
information separately. The current routine could stay and call both new
routines for backward compatibility.

How does it sound?
