When compiling a custom lkm (for digital I/O), I'm need to include
sys/systm.h because sys/lkm.h requires it. I need to define _KERNEL.
And sys/systm.h #includes <lib/libkern/libkern.h> which doesn't get
installed below /usr/include.

I first started doing this on a system that didn't have sources, so
it wasn't just a matter of -I/usr/src/sys or -I/sys. I had to go get
the source for /usr/src/sys/lib/libkern/libkern.h. This appears
broken IMHO. I think I should be able to compile lkms on an installed
system. A send-pr?

Another thing that's a bit sub-optimal is that the function prototypes
for lkmexists and lkmdispatch are only in /usr/src/sys/kern/kern_lkm.c.
I need to call them. Don't they belong in sys/lkm.h? Another send-pr?
