Caught and fixed this afternoon; should be available in tomorrow's
sup.  Sorry for the hiccup, this was my error.

Interestingly enough, the <sys/proc.h> change that triggered this
compile error actually caught a bug in fstat which existed ever since
ktruss/sys_fktrace was added to the system; ktrace assumed that
proc->p_tracep always pointed at a vnode.  When fktrace was added,
p_tracep was modified to point at either a file or a vnode, but fstat
wasn't modified to match.

Now, p_tracep always points at a "struct file", and fstat has been
fixed to be aware of this.
