Follow-up Comment #4, bug #16325 (project coreutils):

Unfortunately, msdn.microsoft.com is the most help you're going to get in
that department (unless Microsoft is kind enough to fork over their source
code, which I doubt). To hazard a guess, however, it looks like they might
scan /dev/fs/[A-Z] and simply report on all available drive letters. (And
this is getting technical for comments; please e-mail me if you are
interested in further discussion).

I'd make a note of it (maybe open another bug at low priority?), but since it
either isn't built or is being disabled by configure, I wouldn't worry about
it. I much prefer the 'out of the box' build working in the next release or
so than having to wait until df works.

I gave up trying to look at the diffs for fsusage, but everything else looked
great! My only concern would be producing a sync command that is a no-op, but
maybe that's nothing new?
