COMPAT_LINUX is native (64bit on 64bit arch, 32bit on 32bit arch) emulation
COMPAT_LINUX32 is 32bit on 64bit arch emulation (useless on 32bit arch)
There is no COMAPT_LINUXxyz with xyz being a specific linux version,
the linux version to emulate is chosen by a sysctl (run time
switch possible if no linux program is running).
As such the COMPAT_LINUXyy is conceptionally different from what we
have with COMPAT_FREEBSDy (compatibility stuff for FreeBSD version y).
I think this is the base of the complains we see here.
Etiquette is for those with no breeding;
fashion for those with no taste.
