It seems to me like we should be as honest as possible about it:  For
the "avail" category, report the number of available blocks on the
read/write filesystem, for "used," report the number of blocks used on
both, and for "blocks," add them together.  This should of course be
modified if, as you say, the source and target filesystems are the

IMHO, of course.
