The FreeBSD kernel and userland have separate patch levels; this is 
because some patches only apply to one or the other.

So, your kernel is at "p2," while your userland is at "p3."  This just 
means that the most recent round of patches didn't update the kernel.

Try "freebsd-version -k," and "freebsd-version -u," to see the different 

Wellbeing to you, Waitman.
