Well, the compiler is supposed to know better than sys/param.h,
because it inherited this number from the runtime kernel when it was

However, __FreeBSD__ comes from the compiler already so if you
"#define __FreeBSD_kernel__ __FreeBSD__" you get the information from
the compiler anyway.

As both approaches do the same thing, I really don't mind either way.
