Yeah, personally I'm in agreement with Ryan here.  The "reserved" amount
is mostly a throw-back concept not often used these days.  SysAdmins
generally kind of expect all of the "free" space to be reported/available
for use.  If we can only show one value, it should be the whole amount,
not excluding reserved space.
