yes, for a bunch of reasons. (evcnt_attach_static() bits could be
done pretty much entirely with .init, btw... 8-)
really, somebody should go look at the way freebsd has done their
automatic-addition-of-stuff (grep for DECLARE), and use a bunch of it.
I've personally (when asking people problems/annoyances that they ran
into w/ netbsd) have had reported back that the difficulty of adding
file systems and malloc types (really, just annoyance at having to mod
a shared file, and maintain it) made things harder than they'd
otherwise have to be.
