[collectd] GaugeInc: Patch for "tail" plugin

I've encountered the following problem (looks like missing
functionality) with CollectD tail plugin. I'd like to present number of
encountered patterns in RRD graph "as is". Reading RRD documentation at
http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/tut/rrdtutorial.en.html revealed that I
need GAUGE RRD type for this to happen.


However, tail plugin is missing GaugeInc DSType, so I had to patch the
code to make this change. If this functionality already exists, I would
appreciate an explanation on how to configure it.


Q1: does this change make sense?

Q2: will you accept and maintain GaugeInc changes starting from 4.10.0


Thank you
