Very good.

Indeed.  Someone pointed out that you might have been able to kldload sem module, and if that worked that might well have been a good solution.  However, kernel modules normally get loaded automagically when needed, so if there was a difference in behavior, compiling the option in directly sometimes works better, and is also a bit more efficient in terms of kernel resources.
