openjdk-7 FTBFS in sid due to this (Hotspot version >=24).  It notices
the existence of <sys/sdt.h>, but expecting it to be the systemtap
version (which is a porting issue, not necessarily a bug), tries to use
DTRACE_PROBE8, DTRACE_PROBE9 whereas the version from FreeBSD only
defines macros up to DTRACE_PROBE5.


So basically, openjdk-7 will FTBFS on GNU/kFreeBSD until this header
file is removed from kfreebsd-kernel-headers in sid.  We could forcibly
disable it, but we may want this functionality turned back on once
systemtap-sdt-dev starts providing a compatible <sys/sdt.h>.
