You don't need PTYFS if your kernel has COMPAT_BSDPTY.
ktrace it and see what it is trying to dup

Trying to attach 'sudo ktrace -i -p <pid>' exited immediately, leaving
an empty trace file.  Using 'ktruss' instead and 'tee'ing its output
to a file (-o outfile caused immediate exit as well) produced the
following output:


which indicates that one of the child processes forked to handle the
connection obtains a file descriptor via netbsd32___socket(),
netbsd32_connect()s with it, does a netbsd32_sendto() on it,
netbsd32_close()s it _and then attempts to perform netbsd32_ioctl() on it
it_, resulting in EBADF.  It further attempts to netbsd32_dup() it,
again resulting in EBADF.  Possible compiler pessimization reorder some

  ntpd[pid]: step-systime: Invalid argument

Not sure what this indicates.  Is 'clockctl' not included?  I'll have
to check the kernel config.

Something is wrong with the ioctl? ktrace it.

Likewise, produced:


Searching for EINVAL revealed calls to netbsd32_ioctl() with commands
failing in this way.  A few lines earlier, ioctl() calls with command
"CLOCKCTL_NTP_ADJTIME" fails with EFAULT.  Alignment issues?
