We need to lighten our burden of backwards compatibility code and
libcompat is in the crosshairs.
libcompat pertains to compatibility with FreeBSD-1 and earlier versions
libcompat may or may not disappear in 5-stable, but it is 100%
certain to die in -current as soon as 5-stable has been branched.
Therefore, please as soon as possible eliminate -lcompat use from
Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20
phk at FreeBSD.ORG | TCP/IP since RFC 956
FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
