Do you use it on some -stable or on -current?

If on -current, please give the 2.6 emulation a try ("sysctl  
compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16" when no linux program is running). If  
this doesn't solve the problem, please have a look at the  
wiki.freebsd.org/linux-kernel page an apply the p4 diff.

If you use this on -stable: There are several bugfixes not backported  
(lack of manpower / more interest to fix more stuff instead of  
backporting it) which are also interesting for 2.4 emulation in  
-stable. Maybe someone wants to have a look at this.
