I'm trying to build the nathanw_sa branch on i386.  I was able
to get a kernel built, but ran into trouble with userland.  The
procedure I'm using is roughly:

cd /usr/src
cvs update -D "Fri Jan 11 23:39:52 UTC 2002" (I *think* that's the latest
  merge with the trunk)
cd /usr/src/sys/arch/i386
cvs update -rnathanw_sa
[guess other directories that need to use the branch]

Getting the branch source was problematic.  An update with the
branch tag in src, src/sys, or src/lib just hangs, so I resorted
to updating src/sys/arch/i386, src/sys/uvm, etc. individually.
Which is why I think I had problems with userland, I probably
missed something.

So, why doesn't an update in top-level directories work, where can
I find a canonical list of directory trees affected by the branch,
and how *should* I be doing this?
