Re: kern/55777: more rump fixes

Thanks for the feedback! I'll see if I can fix it. In the meantime, I also posted one more SMP-related patch: kern/55781

We also have rump (glue) files for new drivers such as ixgbe, nvme, etc -- we will post them as well.

Unfortunately in practice it does not reduce the code slurped in because =
