Yah, I agree. There seem to be some files missing from the
kqemu-dragonfly.patch.tar file you posted. It's making calls
to routines that are not present in files in the tar.
e.g. kqemu_log(), but no file in the tar contains a function by
It will also require a major security and software review, and also
needs a master SYSCTL-based enable (default disabled).
Why an enable? Just don't load the module if you don't want it to be used. qemu doesn't load the module itself.
Also, I don't think we should put $random kernel modules into base. Why isn't pkgsrc a good location?
