Hello all,

Sorry everyone for spamming the lists. ;-)

It turns out I was mistaken, because we never supported TAB3 in the
first place. I thought we just defined it to (TAB1|TAB2) inside

I've just fixed this in the MPSAFETTY tree:


This means on August 20, FreeBSD will support TAB3 like it should. I
won't MFC this change back, because I suspect some ports might break if
I do so. We've lived without TAB3 for many years now, so I guess it
won't hurt to leave RELENG_[67] the way they are.
