Good to know I'm not screwed, that I can recover simply by rerunning csup, this time with RELENG_9_0 instead of RELENG_9. But I hadn't got to making buildworld yet on this update. Possibly there may be no serious difference between 9.0-PRERELEASE and 9.0-RC2 at this stage. As for the difference between STABLE and RELEASE, I believe STABLE is a sort of POSTRELEASE, like the post-release update to NetBSD 5.1 that permitted access to Linux ext2fs partition that didn't work previously with NetBSD; inode was 256 bytes. I think FreeBSD 9-STABLE (RELENG_9) would be development work toward FreeBSD 9.1, after FreeBSD 9.0 is released, but stabler than current/head. I looked in /usr/src/sys/conf/newvars.sh and indeed found that I had 9.0-PRERELEASE rather than RC2.
