Hi octo,

You're right, I just checked OpenBSD 4.2's systat and they're doing it like
        prev = head = (struct inpcb *)&((struct inpcbtable *)off)->inpt_queue;

Let's see how the stats change when I implement it right :-).

Yes, I've overlooked that.

Please, do so :-).

	checking for kernel type (openbsd4.2)... unknown
