I'll poke at it some more. This works in our local tree -- maybe I
missed a change when integrating it back into NetBSD.
It is absolutely, positively *not* the right solution to cause any
of these utilities to try to know the kernel name. Any operation
they have any business doing can be done via /dev/ksyms -- the
question is where I missed one or more references to the kernel name
that were exposed beyond libkvm, which correctly defaults to use
/dev/ksyms if some other kernel name is not rammed down its throat.
