I'm pretty sure that he is the only FreeBSD/arm user that's using
RELENG_6 :-).  We're using current at work, but will soon transition
to RELENG_6, now that these patches have been MFC'd.  Of course, it
wouldn't hurt to at least document this change in the sequence of
version bumps on the 6.x timeline.  But the number of people affected
can be counted on one hand, with fingers left over.
