I had been testing against the value of NetBSD (from <sys/param.h>) in
my #ifdefs, not NetBSD?_?.

Which reminds me. How is a LKM supposed to check this?
I had assumed the current version symbol would be stored in a static
variable somewhere, but I find instead LKM_VERSION, which isn't related
at all (and in kern_lkm.c seems to be the only value passed to the
module for comparison on startup).
This kernel release management is still a bit primitive and very hairy! ;-)
