    Ok, folks, here we go again. I've added in MTEOM, MTFSF, and MTBSF.
    These, of course, corespond to the eod, fsf, and bsf commands of mt. I'm
    pretty sure that eod is working right but I'm not sure about the other
    two. I would appreciate it if someone could test this for me. If it
    turns out that any of the functions are not doing what they are supposed
    to do please tell me what they're doing instead so I know how to fix it.
    If you have already patched your driver with the patch I sent previously
    you only need to apply the one named pt.c-space-patch this time.
    Otherwise, use pt.c-full-patch.
