     The arguments it expects are:

     mp   The file system.

     sbp  A statfs structure, as defined by <sys/mount.h>, into which informa-
          tion is placed about the file system.

     td   The thread which is querying the file system.

     The fields of struct statfs related to the file system are as follows:

     f_type         Type of file system.

     f_flags        A copy of mount exported flags.

     f_bsize        Fragment size.

     f_iosize       Optimal transfer block size.

     f_blocks       The total number of data blocks in the file system.

     f_bfree        The number of free blocks in the file system.

     f_ffree        The number of free nodes available to non-superuser pro-
                    cesses.

     f_syncwrites   The number of synchronous writes since the file system was
                    mounted.

     f_asyncwrites  The number of asynchronous writes since the file system
                    was mounted.

     f_syncreads    The number of synchronous reads since the file system was
                    mounted.

     f_asyncreads   The number of asynchronous reads since the file system was
                    mounted.

     f_namemax      The maximum file name length for this file system.

     f_owner        The user ID of the user that mounted the file system.

     f_fsid         Unique file system ID.

     f_fstypename   The file system type name; a string of at most MFSNAMELEN
                    bytes.

                    of at most MNAMELEN bytes.
