i wasn't aware that COMPAT_10 was in the 1.0 kernels; it shouldn't be.
in any case, there's no code in 1.0 that's conditional on COMPAT_10,
so it won't make a diff.

This is mostly orthogonal to the NetBSD compat options. COMPAT_43 is
a suggested option; if you'd like to know why, read through the
sources that use it...
