I wasn't going to reserve it in the patch. I figured I would make all
the items/flags match, and if someone wants to reserve it, it is easy to
do in one place. I imagine 7.2 is going to be dump/reload anyway so the
decision can be made during development cycle. I basically didn't want
to leave a bit gap and leave it unnamed because it could cause

I see. Done. That comment wrapping is a _feature_ of BSD indent. I
can easily disable it if people don't want it. I have seen it clean up
some pretty ugly comments, but I have seen it mess a few too. I think
it does better good than harm, but others may disagree.
