if it is so easy, why hasn't someone done it already?  it's not
like normal development -- this hangs the machine hard and you
have to go reset by hand.

this isn't like openssl where we're actively trying to upgrade
something that is out of date before release, but is just a
basic and simple clean up that doesn't really change anything.

as such, and because it is such a simple change (one line!),
reverting is easy and to me the clear way forward...  even if
that means reverting sparc cn_tab changes and putting a sparc
conditional on Makefile.kern.conf..

i have *much* more important things to worry about in port
sparc land than unnecessary clean up where i'd have to sit in
my hot noisy machine room to reset it each time.  and that's
when i can find time for sparc...
