One thing I noticed, after updating to a 2.0C kernel is that NetBSD is
*finally* able to read my motherboard's battery backed clock.  Yay.
FreeBSD/amd64 couldn't.  But GNU/LINUX (i386) could.

I thought that I'd filed a PR about this, but I couldn't find it, so
I'll just say thanks to whoever fixed it.  Thanks!

(That was more of an annoyance than a major problem.  I use NTP
to sync my clocks anyway.  But it's nice to have the system clock
approximately right during boot.  (^&)
