System: NetBSD 1.6.1 NetBSD 1.6.1 (JetFast 3/60 mc) #0: Mon Sep 22 15:54:11 MDT 2003 root@x1-6-08-00-20-06-d9-fb:/usr/src/sys/arch/sun3/compile/JetFast_3-60ms sun3
Architecture: m68k
Machine: sun3



When I load the lkm if-ipf.o, several screens full of loader warnings
scroll up the screen.these messages relate to size mismatches of
many items.  So far I have  not encountered any operational oribkems.
Is there ay fix for this or is it a trivial ignorable problem

I am running 1.6.1 on a sun 3/60
the kernel and the lkm module have been locally recompiles
i am using the unit with a tty console
I am using the machine as a gateway/firewall/nat machine on a cable-isp  wideband system
with some pc's using Windows 98 in the local network

this is most like because the LKM was built with options that were not
compatible with the kernel under which it was being loaded.
in the 2.0 release there was some sanity-checking added to catch most
instances of this, but that checking wasn't there in 1.6.x.

do you still see this with later releases?
