    Figured it out!

    Simon's commit today did it:

    If compiling a module with the kernel, suck in opt_global.h.

    Before this commit, INVARIANTS was *NEVER* defined during the
    module build because, well, they were modules and until this commit
    modules did not inherit kernel options.  Since INVARIANTS was not
    being used, the KASSERT() was #define'd to nothing.
aha! I noticed that build somehow broke, but I really didn't get the 
reason *why* that happened. I knew it had to be something with the 
preprocessor, but in the short time I had at hands wasn't able to track 
it down.
