kern/120733: missing after upgrading to 6.3-RELEASE

Thanks for your quick response.   I did read the Handbook, and googled 
carefully before I used to migrate from 6.1 to 6.3.  
(Relevant documentation suggested only minor to minor revision migration 
was supported, except 6.3 to 7.0 would work.) So I migrated to 6.3 
intending to then migrate to 7.0, but I experienced this kern/120733 
bug, leaving the 6.3 installation in a disabled state.

I did email the person responsible, but it is vacation season after all.

Are you (or is anyone) aware of any way to upgrade to 7.0 from the 
6.3-RELEASE installation in this disabled state, i.e. without having to 
do a fresh 7.0 install and a manual port all my application 
configurations?  (Given what happened when I followed the best 
documentation around, I'm reluctant to experiment.)

Thank you,

1) Is there anyway to use to jump ahead to 7.0 while 
6.3 is in this broken state?
