I was able to copy over a GENERIC head/r280342 kernel from my build
machine to the laptop; that booted, and I was then able to do a source
"upgrade" on the laptop:

FreeBSD g1-254.catwhisker.org 11.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #1546  
r280342M/280343:1100066: Sun Mar 22 10:45:54 PDT 2015     
r...@g1-254.catwhisker.org:/common/S4/obj/usr/src/sys/CANARY  i386

So I should be able to resume daily tracking of head on my laptop. :-)

(I also reviewed my kernel config file; it turns out that all of
the sound-related stuff had been commented out, so I removed all
of those lines: all other things being equal, I prefer "simpler.")

Peace,
david
