I actually have a local patch which bumps the m_flags field to an int, 
because I needed to make some custom changes to the socket code, which 
required a few extra mbuf flags.

I'll merge in the bits that widen the field (and shuffle the mbuf 
header accordingly) and ride the kernel version bump resulting from the 
new PID allocation code.
