The file /boot/kernel/if_carp.ko had been installed on older installations. It
is not overwritten now. Thus, it may happen in a some weird case, that it is
left intact. 'make installkernel' is not the only way to upgrade FreeBSD.
To cover these potential cases I have added an entry. This entry doesn't
hurt anybody or anything.
The argument for getting list of ObsoleteFiles.inc can't be taken seriously. The
fact is that this file is going to instantly grow in any forseen future. It
is never going to get shorter. Thus, if we are getting problems with the
list getting too long, then we need to enhance the script that delete old files,
not try to reduce it by 0.0235% removing one of recent entries, that is
I am adding current@ to CC, may be someone can take role of negotiator on this
issue, or just has opinion.
