 This section covers changes to kernel configurations, system tuning, and system control parameters that are not otherwise categorized.
+The man:hwpmc[4] framework had a counter/interrupt state initialization bug fixed for arm64. It also added IDs for Intel Comet/Ice/Tiger/Rocketlake CPUs.
+The man:iflib[4] network interface driver framework had a lock order reversal (LOR) fixed, the vlan processing in the drivers has been fixed. Also some data races that produced crashes on VMWare guests using the vmxnet3 driver have been fixed.
+The man:net80211[4] interface has improved several validations including Mesh ID length and SSID length. It also prevents plaintext injection by A-MSDU RFC1042/EAPOL frames and rejects mixed plaintext/encrypted fragments.
+The man:pf[4] framework had some memory leaks fixed and now ensures the correct source/destination IP address in ICP errors. It also provides improved route-to handling of pfsync'd states along with other changes and improvements.
+The man:sched_ule[4] scheduler bad a bug fixed about a loss of significance when setting kern.sched.interact above 32.
+The usb subsystem had a use-after-free bug fixed.
+The vm subsystem had a problem fixed that broke the vm reservation when it was mistakenly unable to provide a satisfactory set of pages.
