        If you build a kernel with 'options COMPAT_50' it will create a
        sysctl variable kern.oboottime.  However, the compat module does
        not provide this variable.  So, if you have older images that
        require this variable, you cannot use the compat module.
        Move the sysctl code out of kern/sysctl_init.c and into
        kern/kern_time_50.c, and update compat/common/compat_mod.c to
        initialize it.
