The latter works fine for me. 

Well, more precisely, I was tracking cvs -current and in .../sys/arch/i386
I updated to the MP branch ("cvs update -dP -rsommerfeld_i386mp_1"),
and remembered not to use the "-A" flag when doing occasional top-level
cvs updates.

There are occasional drifts between -current userland and the .../i386
code using this approach, but nothing hugely major, and various people
have kindly synced the branch to -current from time to time.
