Hm, on NetBSD it should probably make use of the cpu_counter framework if
__HAVE_CPU_COUNTER is defined - machine/cpu_counter.h will define
cpu_hascounter() to test for presence of such counters and cpu_counter() or
cpu_counter32() will return current values.

If time passes somehow odd (and this is causing your problem), wouldn't the
ALTQ counters reflect the drops?

Can you test a 3.0 beta or -current?
