Thank you for those words or cheer.

I inquired some of my friends to get some testing, and in most of case
the answer was « I'm running RELENG_7 ».  So I've made a patch against
RELENG_7.  There are only minor changes in src/Makefile.inc1 because
-DNO_CTR has been sown all over the file :).

So to make it clear for casual glancers:

!!! !!! !!!
	This patch is against RELENG_7.  If you can afford a reboot,
	please test!  I need some feedback before it gets committed to
	-CURRENT.  The patch is very stable on my laptop.
!!! !!! !!!

Thanks you every one.
Best regards,
