identd eats all the cycles up looking for symbols at bogus places (as
I understand... maybe wrong) if kernel and identd are out of sync (or
/netbsd is not the actual running kernel and /netbsd and identd is out
of sync even though the running kernel and identd are in sync).

Renaming the right kernel as "netbsd" or giving identd the kernel's
file name makes the problem go away (if that's the problem he was
talking... ;-)
