the f_type field of the statfs struct has been deprecated. you need
COMPAT_09 for it to be filled in. i'm trying to add a '-t type'
switch to df(1) and it could use this field very simply to do this.
why was it `removed' ?
It was removed because the fixed type numbers are quite bogus, and
don't agree with LKMs very well. There is a new field, f_fstypename,
which contains the name of the file system type in ASCII.
