  When I was working on adding DiskMeter support to
/usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/xosview (another piece of code people
could look at for kernel munging examples, good or bad :) ), I
looked at the code for vmstat to see how it did disk stats.

  If we have kernel-munging code in the tree that is
well-written :), and that will definitely do kernel munging for
the near future (I don't know if vmstat fits both of these), that
might be better than adding the sample code???
