We don't use anything newer than RELENG_4, yet.  However, a modified 
patch went into RELENG_4 (rev.  In my eyes it wasn't 100% 
semantically correct, but it did its job.  The respective source code 
has changed quite a bit in RELENG_7 (probably RELENG_5 and RELENG_6, 
too, but I didn't look), mainly because of the introduction of kernel 
threads, and as far as I can tell from looking at the code the problem 
doesn't exist there.  But I haven't tested it.
