Hello everyone... :)
I liked the idea of having descriptions for various
sysctl oid's in -CURRENT, so I have created a patch
to merge these over to -STABLE.
I am unsure as to how much work has already gone into
bringing this to -STABLE, but as the descriptions
already exist in the source, I am fairly confident that
it was planned at some point.
All I can really ask is that someone with more knowledge
than myself about the sysctl internals have a brief look
at my patch to see if it is viable.
On my system (4.8-STABLE), everything seems to work, and
there have been no adverse effects from it.
(That I am aware of at least)
The patch is attached to this email, and is also available
I hope someone may find this useful. :)
Very best regards,
