kernel bug in uipc_syscalls.c

Hi -

  I'm in the process of reinstalling FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE onto an i386
box.  I was in the process of recompiling my custom kernel when I came
upon an error during the "make" step, in uipc_syscalls.c.  The error
looked basically like:

uipc_syscalls.c in function "socket" 176: error: structure has no
member named `f_gps'

I looked into it, and I came to the conclusion that f_gps was supposed
to be f_ops, a member of struct file.  So I backed up uipc_syscalls.c
and made the change.  The kernel has now been compiling just fine
through that bug.

sooo... I can't imagine you guys haven't found this yet, but in the
unlikely even you haven't, there ya go.  I don't know how my copy of
uipc_syscalls.c could get foobar'd otherwise.

... additionally, I'm quite interested to know if that bug exists on
your end of things.  PLEASE let me know if it doesn't.
