Bug#532627: kfreebsd-image-7.2-1 for kfreebsd-i386 seriously broken


The 7.2-1 kernel package for kfreebsd-i386 is currently in NEW.

		!!! Do not install it !!!

I would just say "important" as it prevents only 32-bit binaries to work,
64-bit binaries works for me for weeks ...

This prevents almost all biarch packages to be built, including glibc, gcc,
gcj, gdc, etc. I had to downgrade the kernel on the build daemons to
version 7.1 to get those packages built.

It prevents all 32-bit binaries to work, on kfreebsd-i386 it means whole system. So, it is really "grave".

I am fine with removing the check for now (or maybe removing
BI_BRAND_NOTE from sys/amd64/linux32/linux32_sysvec.c), I was more
speaking about a more long term solution that may be merged upstream,
like checking the OS field correctly.

I have a slightly hackish patch with the check of the OS field.
After test on kfreebsd-i386 I will put in our SVN.
