This ought to work since the 9th, with the new copy.s.  I haven't
rebooted yet, but did a similiar local change to copy.s and got
things to work again.  The problems was that the changes to
kern_exec.c involved a length argument to copyoutstr greater than 64K,
and the old generic m68k implementation were known to not deal with
such situations.
