The version defs and symbol versioning are for releases, and not
meant for use to solve -current upgrade problems.  You wouldn't
see Sun bump their public version definitions to work around
interim ABI changes in their development tree.  We will always
have issues like this for those running and developing in -current,
and we shouldn't be using public version definitions to work
around our own internal build problems.
