OK, but what I actually meant to ask was whether I need to apply some
patches to nbd-client or nbd-server to make it work with The Hurd.
We'll probably need to change the "#inclue <linux/nbd.h>" in cliserv.h to
something saner, but is there something else that needs to be done?

I did not intend to do that; I only wanted to inform Pavel Machek of this
port. But for that, I needed this information...

This is Linux world. On a quiet day, you can hear Windows reboot.
