We decided that since almost all FreeBSD code is shared with other
systems (most notably, DragonFlyBSD), there wasn't much point in
keeping this field.  The task of identifying all the different systems
affected by any particular bug is best left to CVE, so we confine
ourselves to identifying where the problem exists in our tree (e.g., is
it contrib code or not?) and listing the CVE name so that people can
look up other affected systems if they wish.
