:         I am trying to add new system call for proportional share scheduler. I have written 
:the code for the syscall in /kern/kern_resource.c and modified /sys/sysproto.h /kern/syscall.master. 
:Most of the remaining files related to syscall are auto generated.
:         The kernel compiles properly but the still the auto generated files donot show the new syscall that 
:i have added. Is there any other file that needs to be modified. I am trying this on VKERNEL.
:         Please let me know. Thanks

    In your local source tree:

    cd /usr/src/sys/kern
    make sysent
