Yes, at the time we were discussing it, I whipped up the attached patch.
I'm not sure it was ever tested, but it seems pretty trivial.

A test case seems conceptually desirable, but I'm not sure how the
test case would be able to detect the BSD kernel behavior.  So a static
OS test seems more sensible.
