Perhaps there should be a file /etc/sysctl.conf that is run from rc if
# Turn off timestamp option
net.inet.tcp.rfc1323 = 0
# Let users mount filesystems
vfs.generic.allowusermount = 1
It could either be parsed by rc with sh magic and fed variable by
variable to "sysctl -w", or sysctl could grow a '-f file' option.
