(1) fs types are now names, rather than numbers, which they used to
	be.  COMPAT_09 will buy you binary compatibility; put it in
	your kernel before you upgrade your kernel or user-land
	sources, or you will be screwed.  After you've upgraded, you
	can toss it again, if you like -- i'll try to warn people
	when changes are made that would require it.

(2) (1) allows LKM VFS's to be rationally used; check out the code, if
	you want to know the diffs.

(3) i warned you that if you'd upraded your tree during the very
	hectic period a couple of weeks ago that you'd have about 2
	weeks to get your tree upgraded before i pulled some plugs...
	Well, I'm going to do that this Saturday, after the tar files
	have been made.  within another two weeks after that, if
	you're running -current right now, you'll NEED to upgrade
	again.  If you've not yet done the first upgrade, DO IT NOW,
	or you'll be somewhat SOL after this weekend -- yes, the
	binary snapshots will prolly be useful, but...
