Subject: Re: [PATCH e2fsprogs] Add ZFS detection to libblkid

Interesting, I didn't know libvolume_id existed.
Is there a reason why there should be 2 different libraries doing what
appears to be essentially the same thing?

Actually, those are valid C99 tokens for comments. I don't see any style
guide in the source of e2fsprogs, and they do appear to be used in some
places (like lib/uuid/uuid_gen_nt.c), but if necessary that can be
easily changed.

That's unrelated to the purpose of this patch, it seems to be just a
style fix (inherited from Andreas' patch) :-)
