Heya Neal,

I'm trying to understand your patch (espcially since I'm trying to get 
trivfs sorted out in my head).

It appears to:

1) Clean up the syntax a little bit.
2) Avoid the runtime overhead of dereferencing a pointer.

I'm curious as to why you went through the effort. =)  #2 doesn't seem 
like it would be worth it, so I'm wondering if the former syntax was 
prone to typing errors, or if I've completely missed the point.

Thanks for your time!
