[PATCH] Detect GNU/kFreeBSD in user-visible kernel headers

Hey Robert,

Thanks for jumping into this.  Sadly, it is a bit of a mess.  Many of the "multiple BSD flavor" support #ifdefs are actually quite stale by now, so they should be cleaned up.  That's not something you have to cope with, unless you want, but it colors my first reaction :)

My second reaction was why not have

#ifndef __FreeBSD_kernel__
#define __FreeBSD_kernel__ __FreeBSD__

in sys/param.h and then just change __FreeBSD__ to __FreeBSD_kernel__ in the headers that are affected?  But I'm not quite sure what effects that would have on your environment.

Thanks for considering the above modification.
