Umm, OK, I didn't spot that.  It's unfortunate that David didn't change
our own file system code to match (or even build LINT, which would have
shown him the problem), so that RELENG_6 current doesn't build.

Still, I would argue for fixing the code rather than reverting the

Arguably, Arla has been broken for more than two years and you only just
woke up and noticed.  If you had tried to build Arla on -CURRENT at any
