About the whitespaces.. I was told that it is according to style(9) that
a function has no variables after the first opening accolade, there has to
be an
extra newline. For the rest, no problem :-) I hope someone has the time to
at the rest of my patches (all can be found at

By the way, the way that the dragonflybsd sourcecode complies with style(9)
isn't really appropriate, does anyone mind if I change most of the userland
source code to apply to style(9), which makes the code easier to read and
introduces more consistency all over the source code. If there are no
to this I will provide one large (if not huge) patch that fixes everything,
for I was
stunned by the un-cleanness of the code (I come from the NetBSD camp :P).

No problem, I love contributing to interesting projects :)
