This was accidentally broken as part of a load of kernel clean-ups.
yar at freebsd.org (cc'd) committed a fix to -CURRENT Sun Mar 5 22:52:16 2006
( http://docs.FreeBSD.org/cgi/mid.cgi?200603052252.k25MqHpb094838 ) 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.
