I'm in the process of setting up a sparc 1 running NetBSD to act as
a log server for around 200 unix systems.  All is working fine except
this little piece of code in syslogd that probably seemed like a good
idea at the time:

/* don't allow users to log kernel messages */
if (LOG_FAC(pri) == LOG_KERN)

However, it also prevents other kernels from logging messages to the KERN
facility.  This is not desirable.  With this code ifdef'ed out it appears
to be working just fine.
