when we designed the i386 W^X stuff, dale and i made a little mistake.
there's a better way which I call 512m high program mapping. anyways,
the result of this is that people need to re-upgrade if they are
running i386 snap, to a new i386 snap that goes out soon. the binary
file format has changed again, and not all old binaries will run.
so you can do this with new /bsd.rd, boot it, and upgrade.
that's going out the door today.
