No, this patch is completely bogus. The reason these four files

  svr4_sysent.c svr4_syscall.h svr4_proto.h svr4_union.h

got updated during buildkernel was that they have timestamps older than
sys/kern/makesyscalls.sh . After touching these files, svr4 built just file.

So the question is: shouldn't the newer version of these files, after
doing 'make sysent', be committed?
