with COMPAT_09, it'll require *no* recompile other than the kernel.

if you really want the new stuff, it's stuff like mount*, fsck, newfs,
find, etc.  touching /usr/include/sys/mount.h will show you what gets
rebuilt.  Ignore the chunk of libc that gets rebuilt -- it doesn't use
the changed info.

No, the type name change touches very little.
