 I realized that I had at least one machine that did not emit those
 messages.  The output of 'modstat' on all such machines indicates that
 all modules are builtins, even though they have "options MODULAR".  The
 difference appears to be that on the affected machines I eliminate
 COMPAT_SUNOS and COMPAT_SVR4, while on the unaffected machine I don't.
 I still have the SYSV IPC options enabled.  Perhaps there's an adverse
 interaction there?
 (My perspective is that if the affected machines are ever asked to
 run a SunOS 4.x or 5.x binary they've been compromised, so I eliminate
 the compatibility options.)
 I'll build a test kernel soon to see what changes elicit the behavior
 on the currently-unaffected machine.
 Apologies for hijacking the PR.
