This version is rather ancient and also breaks on macOS.
I've updated it, fixed macOS support and pushed the result to my staging
tree at https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/staging/nbd.git;a=summary

Feel free to pick my version from there if you respin or merge the
series. When you do, please test it on a Linux machine again to make
sure I didn't break anything with my fixes :)
