Actually, I want to tell everyone and remind Chris of a problem we
ran into with libkern.

Chris wrote an LKM which he loaded into the kernel. It needed
strncpy, but strncpy is in libkern. Hence strncpy wasn't there,
and the LKM load failed.

This points out a rather silly problem with having these functions
be in libkern.. any thoughts from anyone?
