System: NetBSD 8.99.7 NetBSD 8.99.7 (SPEEDY 2017-11-29 22:03:05 UTC) #0: Wed Nov 29 23:14:50 UTC 2017 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
The if_gif module includes a copy of ip_ecn.c routines, which are also
used by the stf(4) driver (not yet modular).  If a kernel is built with
stf(4) included and gif(4) excluded, and then you load the if_gif module,
you get duplicate symbol error messages for ip_ecn_{e,in}gress and the
module fails to load.
See above
Separate the ip_ecn routines out into a separate module, and make the
if_gif module require ip_ecn.  Then, loading of if_gif will auto-load
ip_ecn if not already built-in.  (If stf(4) is already included in the
kernel, ip_ecn would be built-in and no need to load another copy.)
