Thanks for the pointers.  I'll work on getting a uniform patch which
incorporates both.  (Though some of the comments in the OpenSolaris patch
are a bit scary.)

Yeah, that would suck.  It would be nice if they could agree on a common set
of probes.  I don't know that we have any contacts within the two
development communities but if we can scare some up maybe we can get them to
talk to each other. :-/
