Does the new HP-UX version happen to support also group quotas? If so, I
could make it use the Linux code by just disabling the inode quotas.

But I'd guess the QCMD macro was added just for making it easier to
compile Linux code and trying to use group quotas would fail. So perhaps
the HP-UX vs. Linux check could just be changed. Does the patch below
