I didn't install world from HEAD, so I should be fine. Rather than
rebuilding RELEASE, I'll try PREVIEW.

It's just for personal use, and was bored so I figured I'd update. I
didn't realize I was trying to install HEAD until I booted the new
kernel and it said DEVELOPMENT.
It looks like Joerg fixed the bug I hit in HEAD, and with his tip about
loading the vinum module manually, everything is working like before.
