OK; working from a just-built-this-morning HEAD, I fetched the patch &
applied it with no problems.  Building was also uneventful.  :-}

Booting was OK, up to the point where I tried to use one of my scripts
that uses getopt(1); at that point -- where I had been successful with
the unpatched HEAD -- I got:

/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Undefined symbol "__mb_sb_limit" referenced from COPY relocation in getopt
Usage: /usr/local/sbin/mk_table [-d] [-f] [-s] [-t] [-v] [-T table#] directory|files...
set_ip RC was 512 for command "/bin/sh /etc/rc.firewall-post-dhcp -i -m -g -b -n"

(The script that uses getopt(1) is /usr/local/sbin/mk_table, which
I use to populate an IPFW table; I've attached a copy for reference.
In turn, the script was being invoked from a Perl script I was
using to set a NIC's IP address on a network that doesn't seem to
have a DHCP server.  Neither script is very exciting.)

Oh:  this is an i386:

localhost(8.0-C)[1] uname -a
FreeBSD localhost 8.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT #594: Fri Nov 16 12:16:52 PST 2007     root at localhost:/common/S4/obj/usr/src/sys/CANARY  i386

I'm quite willing to test patches; I keep a private copy of the
FreeBSD CVS repository on this laptop to facilitate such things.
(And recovering from them....)
