Rump kerneles are built with only COMPAT_50 and above.  Thus it is not
possible to test some things such as ioctl argument conversions (such as
those defined in sys/compat/common/if_43.c).
Build a rump kernel.
Update rump build to include all compatability options in every rump kernel.

Alternatively, update rump to include _NO_ compatability options, and allow
the rump kernel to load a default compat module (which includes all of the
COMPAT_xx options).
