My -current sup tree is pretty much up to date.  However, I am finding that
a 1.1A kernel doesn't work with any program that seems to access kvm, i.e.
top or pstat.  pstat -T gives the following output:

243723/-1878594707 files
    775 vnodes
	pstat: malloc: Cannot allocate memory

Now my firt thought was that my version of pstat was broken, so I compiled and
tested the one in my -current tree (ensuring my include files were up to date
as well).  This gives exactly the same output.  My version of libkvm is 4.0
and is a Dec 19 compile/install.
A 1.1_ALPHA (from the distribution upgrade floppy) kernel works fine.
Can someone shed some light on this ?
