The configuration of the gnulib 'mountlist' module (used by findutils
and coreutils, among others) is written in such a way that on OpenBSD
it uses the getmntinfo() function
which, according to this manual page, invokes getfsstat().
Why would you make it call getfsstat() directly?

That test is not meant to succeed on OpenBSD. As the comments
indicate, it's there for OSF/1 and Darwin.

It is maintained in gnulib, module 'mountlist'.
