  | Does this kind of change really require a version bump?

That one didn't, but there was another checkin, 5 or 6 mins earlier,
which changed (added to) struct mdproc (on i386 and amd64 anyway),
and as that struct is included in struct proc, struct proc got bigger,
and that does require a version bump.

However, another change, a few hours earlier, carried a note ...

 | Kernel bump delayed till introduction of PT_GETDBREGS/PT_SETDBREGS soon.

and as best I can see, neither that change, nor the ones around it,
had any reason to require a bump.


ps: kernel version bumps are good - we will soon approach 7.77.99 and at
that point, a branch of netbsd-8 is kind of forced!
