If the API is still present in our source tree, then the implementation
probably does not belong under COMPAT_43.  As I see it COMPAT_43 is to
match an old ABI that one can no longer (on modern NetBSD) compile to.
What you are describing sounds like "we have an API still, and we've had
it since 4.3", which is not in my view COMPAT.
