My guess is that he will deliver it to DragonFly BSD, and it
will then be up to someone with FreeBSD commit privs to look
at steal^h^h^h^h^h^h adapting it for our purposes...

Note that we are already in the code-freeze for 5.2-release,
so I will estimate the probability that all this happens in
time for this release is zero.  Absolute zero.  What might
happen for 5.3-release is a different story, of course.
