Your changes look great. The missing feature I'd most like check_disk is 
a flag to change reporting (and perhaps also thresholds, but that's less 
important) from being in terms of free space to being in terms of 
utilisation, so the percentages would be like 'df'.

For some reason, my brain finds scanning utilisation percentages much
easier than free space ones - contrast:

DISK OK - free space: / 666 MB (13%); /boot 31 MB (32%); /export 63118 MB (63%)


DISK OK - utilization: / 4251 MB (87%); /boot 63 MB (67%); /export 33414 MB (37%)

Anyone else wired this way?
