 the right way to fix this would be to convert that part
 of netstat to use sysctl on live kernels.  then you can
 change the in-kernel version more sanely without breaking
 apps.  sure, a deaad kernel netstat user will have to
 match kernel/user versions but that's always the case.
 netstat is one of the biggest kvm users left, so it would
 be a great place to start :-)
