Thanks for the information, I'll take care of it ...

I had sent a request for approval of the patch to the release engineer
a few hours before the PR was submitted, and I was not aware, that it
existed (it did not when I found that a ZFS root prevented the locate
db from receiving any data, since the "find" just stopped after noticing
that "/" was none of the known local file-system types ...)

Regards, STefan
