My nits:

  o - it would be nicer if you commit your change in your local git and enter
      a proper commit message and then 'git format-patch' and send that here
      as that makes it even simpler for us to merge...

  o - there are C99/C++ comments in there, we aim for C89 portability so they
      need to be fixed - I don't see the point in providing a chunk of
      commented code anyway.

  o - there's no documentation for the new function, please also provide a man
      page for it. You should be able to find lots of inspiration and syntax
      to copy from the already existing ones.
