So after analyzing the code of check_disk it looks like it would be the 
best way
to add two values to the mount_entry struct in mountlist.h:
 State (STATE_OK,..)
 gid   (group id)

I couldn't find any file (except check_disk.c) which uses the mount_entry 
so I like to know if a change like this matches nagiosplug's coding rules.
I'm in doubt because it's located in the lib directory.

Please be lenient toward me since this is my first contribution.. :)
