I'd like to also publicly object to the removal of the code from bmake
(I responded privately at first).
FreeBSD has filemon, and I suspect it has more acceptance there, but
maxv stated he will propose it.
Sharing the code with FreeBSD is more than worth the 200 unused-by-us
lines of code, and it's already optional.
No rush though. Let's wait to see what they say.

I have no objections to removing the kernel module.
