I've encounted two problems with the sources supped from 12/24.  Any
clues are much appreciated...

1) someone broke ps:

[root@stingray]~# ps aux
ps: proc size mismatch (got 17484 total, kinfo_proc: 560)

Top and w still work, and an older copy of ps (week or so) still works
fine, so I conclude ps itself broke.

2) I can finally get a kernel to compile and link again without
anything missing, but when I try to boot it, it just gets most of the
way through the autoconfig and then spontaneously reboots.  I notice
some of the characters are garbled on the screen too... *shrug*
Config file appended (kernel from Dec 19 still works fine):

# original config file:
# GENERICAHBBT -- Generic machine w/ahb and bt drivers -- distribution floppy
# STINGRAY -- Config for Michael VanLoon's i386 box
