are we just missing a checkin here?
Where's dumpspec supposed to be declared?  There's an extern in 
sys/systm.h  and that's all.

:Update of /cvsroot/src/sys/kern
:In directory netbsd1:/var/slash-tmp/cvs-serv7520
:Modified Files:
:        kern_subr.c
:Log Message:
:Fix crash dump device selection after the recent swap changes:
:- If RB_ASKNAME, prompt for the dump device, defaulting to
:  partition 'b' of the root device, if the root device is a disk.
:- Else, if dumpspec is set to "none", do not configure a dump device.
:- Else, if dumpspec is set by config(8), attempt to use that device.
:- Else, dumpspec is wildcarded or unspecified; if the root device is
:  a disk, select partition b.  (which was the previous default dump
:  partition)
:Note, dumps to a local disk now work even if root is on nfs.
