This typically happens when your kernel is newer than your userland. A few
utilities (like netstat) look at kernel memory and try to interpret it. Some
have been fixed (ps, top) to use sysctl instead, if operating on the life

Now if some data structure relevant for the statistics the tool gets is changed
in the kernel, old userland utilities can no longer access them. Rebuilding
userland should fix this.
