The code in vimage-commit2 passed through a make universe run, though a 
new panic just emerged in head related to kmacy's changes to routing 
tbale locking.  I feel somewhat reluctant to dump commit2 to svn while 
there's an unrelated but known panic that doesn't allow the system to 
boot, and furthermore bz and I wanted to double-check that all sysctls 
would still work exactly the same way before and after the change - a 
few days ago I noticed something strange but want to check it with the 
most recent head...

Yes it would be extremely usefull to have people doing unbiased tests of 
all kinds, though I think that the right time to commence testing would 
be in a week or two from now when we'll have all three different 
variable layout and referencing models in place in head, selectable as 
compile time option, as outlined at the bottom of bz's wiki page:
