I was in contact with Roc last September and updated both the loadbsd.c
source and the binary for the distribution archive.

No. I didn't do any pull-up requests for NetBSD-9. So it won't appear before
NetBSD-10 I guess.

Maybe I should do that? I think anybody can do such a request and include my
commit messages from the 6th of September.

I don't have a machine handy to test, but I'm happy to test the patch to netbsd-9 and make a distribution available for someone to quickly check? (then submit the pullup once confirmed)

I should read the commit before emailing! It should Just Work unless there is something very bizarre in the build, but will go ahead and confirm that netbsd-9 builds with it (I may as well test it for netbsd-8 while I'm there)
