Just a data point, I have been using a very recent -current kernel
with a 1.5.1_alpha userland and top + ps work fine.
right. simonb fixed top & ps (process grovellers) to use well-defined,
forwards-compatible sysctl()'s to get process info. i can even run a
32 bit sparc top or ps binary under netbsd32 emulation on a sparc64 box
and get sane results.
if this does not work, it's a bug to be fixed.
