 Oh, joy!  Here comes another conflict with the pgoyette-compat
 But YES, for now it would be acceptable to have a #ifdef COMPAT_50

 compat/netbsd32/netbsd32_compat_50.c and provide an appropriate
 (Actually, this prompted me to look at the existing code on my
 branch, and it seems I've still got some clean-up work to do here
 for compat32_50_rnd_ioctl() - the "hook" needs to use the new
 MP-safe mechanism to prevent the module code from being unloaded
