If you are lucky enough to have an AMD64 system that you've been dying to run OpenBSD on but you've experienced problems, this might help you out.

It looks like snapshots currently on ftp mirrors for both i386 & amd64 are dated from May 6th, which is after this commit was made. So if you are installing from scratch, snapshots might be easier to use than working with 3.5-release and then folding in the needed patch. Also, for those who will benefit from this change, keep in mind that this patch appears to be part of 3.5-current, and not the 3.5-stable tree.
