I noticed that these four patches are very similar to what was done in 
XNU. Now, I don't know if they should be applied to GNU Mach, I'm not 
a legal expert, so I don't know if this patches are a copyright 
violation of some kind. Or they are just too trivial for that.

I mean, the function prototypes and include directives do not match 
exactly, since it's a different version of Mach, but the layout of the 
new .h files is the same. It's logical to organize debug print 
functions into *-print.h files and to write .h files in such a way. 
Everyone would do it, since writing a prototype is just modifying from 
an existing function definition and it's nothing original.

I don't know. If these patches are a copyright violation I wouldn't 
apply them to a publicly available source repository.
