What I've always been wondering since Kris first mentioned this
technique in the thread's course (building -STABLE in a jail on
a -RELEASE host or vice versa, IIUC) was the following:  There's
the host's kernel serving a differing world's userland.  We all
know what's the usual answer to "I just updated my kernel and
now -- insert whatever you please -- stopped working. :)  What
did I miss?  Or is it plain luck when things just work and one
shouldn't ask why they do? :>
