Updating to a modular kernel

I'm not certain that modules are the crux of the issue, or even for sure that the -current GENERIC needs them. But...

I have a machine that has been running netbsd-5 (NetBSD_5.0_STABLE). I'm trying to update back into -current for the first time in more than a year. I knew to unpack the modules set and install new bootstrap before rebooting the new kernel, and then I installed the rest of the sets (built from today's sources, Or maybe yesterday's).

  Most everything is working, except my mfs /tmp.  At boot, I see:

Mounting all filesystems...
mount_mfs: /tmp: mount: Unknown error: 252
/etc/rc.d/mountall reported failure status 1

So, I though maybe I needed to load the module. I put a "load=mfs" on my boot.cfg, and did see on the next boot:

8987084+493396+539816 [476512+461973]=0xa75ad8

However, the same error occurs trying to mount /tmp. The relevant line in my fstab was/is:

/dev/ld0b /tmp mfs rw,-s=1052352

  Anyone know what important detail of change I missed?  Thanks...
