Ummm ... I think you're missing my point ... I would like disk stats to 
work ... however, because they're broken, the ccd fails to compile on 
several ports.  Neither of these situations is all that good, but the 
latter is unacceptable.  Considering that disk stats don't work _anyhow_, 
I don't see how turning them off in the ccd is going to really affect 

(Indeed, I _really_ want disk stats to work ... the data they provide 
will be quite useful in some of the work I do here at NASA.)

In this case, I'm trying to support the ccd driver, and trying to ensure 
that I don't break your privately maintained patch is rather difficult.  
You might consider sending it in via send-pr, or something.
