Looks good, if nobody beats me, I commit something like this at the weekend.

We like to get unified diffs (diff -u), and we have the program send-pr in
FreeBSD to send problem reports and solutions (it helps if you send the PR
number -- which will be mailed to you -- to an appropriate list, e.g.
emulation@ or amd64@ in this case, or to a committer which is interested).
There's also a web based interface on the FreeBSD.org website and in the
ports collection there's a gtk based send-pr program.
