bug#6186: du in coreutils should add the -d flag as a shortcut to --max-

I believe it shows up as an attachment on the 
http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=6186 with my last email : 
[du_add_d.patch (application/octet-stream, attachment)]

I can also post the patch directly instead of as a file attachment if that is 

Just doing a normal #define DU_DEBUG 1  was giving me an error about lower case 
function fts_cross_check not existing.  Is there a better way for me to test 
this to ensure my modification of the debug flag to --debug did not negatively 
impact past work?
