Yes that patch got pulled up into -rnetbsd-1-6 branch.  If you want "stable",
just track that branch.  The best thing to do is subscribe to source-change@
and then procmail out anything with the [netbsd-1-6] in the subject into a
special folder and closely monitor changes and updates that concern you.
