Yes, that's the one. Rebuilding after supping the new tcp_subr.c gave
a kernel that crashed. I tried recompiling; same thing.

Hmpf. Meanwhile, I nuked the updated tcp files, resupped with -o,
reinstalled comp.tar.gz from a snapshot I built yesterday, recompiled,
and it went away. Weird. I'm guessing this is weirdness in a local,
non-NetBSD NFS server; it wouldn't be the first time that's happened.
Sorry for the false alarm; thanks for the help, jason.
