Hi Robert,

hm, by now it should be obvious that we are not too excited about this
"trimtester" and its code quality. There are many sane tools out there
that have good code quality (e.g., fio).

And this really is not the "trimtester" mailing list.

So thanks, but I think it is better to send these patches to the
original author/make a pull request on github.

Thanks, rck
