I've just upgraded my "test system" at home (P90, 64M, IDE) to -current
as of May 23. Feeling adventurous I built a new kernel with UVM and

After rebuilding the usual suspects (libkvm, ps, w, top etc.) things
seem to be working nicely. Just one oddity, top(1) omits the "Wired"
count of the memory stats like so:

Memory: 9064K Act 4248K Inact K Wired 41M Free 4K Swap 128M Swap free

No big deal, just thought it was odd.

Is it just me, or is program loading much faster? It sure _feels_
faster. vi(1) and top(1) are up and running almost before I hit Enter...
