This was accidentally broken as part of a load of kernel clean-ups. 
yar at (cc'd) committed a fix to -CURRENT Sun Mar 5 22:52:16 2006
( ) with 
an MFC of 5 days, but it doesn't seem to have been merged yet.

It may have been turned down by re@, or it may have just been forgotton 
about. (I hope it's the latter, as I think it's an important fix to get 
into 6.1-R).  Hopefully yar@ will be able to MFC this.
