Hi Kamil,

First of all, sorry for no one has reviewed your patches for over one
month! You may want to ping more often (say, per week) next time if it
still happenes :)

Another thing is that there is no maintainer for tools code.

Minor nit: it's quite a long line; you may need break it. And space is
needed after ','. 

Otherwise, this patch looks good to me.
