 I'm surprised that if using -current rump sources on netbsd-5 is easy,
 a pullup wouldn't be (and it does not matter if it doesn't make it in
 the 5.1 releases), but it could make it 5.2 if it was pulled up to
 netbsd-5...  and it would fix a feature which is broken on stable
 releases (what most users will be running, with all the rump_<foo>.8
 man pages advertizing the vnd-less file mounting feature).
 Oh well, at least I tried :)  The feature is not of great importance to
 me, and I cannot request or commit changes myself, so feel free to close
 the PR if you won't fix it.
