OpenBSD tries to keep this header in sync with NetBSD, AFAICT from the
cvs logs in their tree.

I have the queue.h headers from all three on my disk and I'm already
looking at the differences, so if you don't mind waiting 1-2 days so
that I can run any changes through a buildworld I'll give it a try.

If you have changes that depend on SIMPLEQ_* that could serve as a test
case that you can share, it would be nice too :-)
