/dev/drum versus libkvm?

I notice that libkvm uses some values defined in <sys/paths.h>
but one of those paths doesn't exist in DragonFly:
#define __SYS_PATH_DRUM "/dev/drum"
I'm trying to fix a broken FBSD port which does a kvm_open()
before trying to read the swap usage, and I'm thinking maybe
this is the reason for the breakage. (It's broken on FBSD
also and has been for a long time.)
I notice that pstat uses kvm_openfiles instead. Would that
be a reasonable approach to fixing my broken port?
BTW, is libkinfo eventually going to absorb the functions
