	I really don't like the way freebsd did about malloc types, sysctls
	and kernel internal initialization ordering (based on special
	linker symbol).  it is too hard to track down mistakes in those
	declarations.  I wasted enough time debugging linker hack mistakes.
	I give my vote to current netbsd way than freebsd way.
