hmm, something is unloading compat.  I wonder if builtins can be
autounloaded now (shouldn't be allowed to happen).  I didn't notice this
behaviour on a fresh anita installation, so i'm not sure what it's about.

yes, it's documented in modstat.8.  Basically there was no easy way to
extend what modstat reports without breaking old binaries, so i decreed
better reporting of builtin disabling as a separate change.  (didn't get
around to filing a pr yet, though.)

i'm on the road now, so i can't look into this now.  but if you can
meanwhile figure out what's causing the unload, i'll fix it around
next weekend.  sorry 'bout the brekage
