Right -- that is a kernel option, but it's new in 5.x and I have yet
to get my paws on a 4.x system.
However it's a standard option in the GENERIC kernel, so I'd say you
should incorporate it unless you have a specific reason not to. Mind
you, as what it seems to do is enable some 4.x specific syscalls (see
/usr/src/sys/conf/NOTES), you will have to enable it in the same
circumstances as you would need the COMPAT4X stuff I described before.
