OK, the problem started with

Summary: Compile the kernel with -fno-common to guarentee that we do not
accidently put non-extern'd variable declarations in header files. Our
module loader no longer deals with commons so duplicate declarations can
cause kldloaded modules to fail, and its sloppy programming anyway.
That's about as far as I can take it today.
BTW, my email is not rrs at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sorry about that.
Yes, -fno-common is the culprit, as to the fix, I will look at it later
tonight and see what I can find.
world builds kernel builds everything is fine, just a few little niches
that need to be touched upon matt.
we are working on those..
