It's probably due to a -current userland being run against a 5.0-based
kernel (I built the ramdisk for him; he said that he wanted a -current
ramdisk, even though I cautioned him that it might not work).  I'll
build you a 5.0-based ramdisk when I get a chance to work on it tonight,
but perhaps some time being spent debugging the ramdisk build problem
on Cygwin might be worthwhile?
