Hmm, interesting.  I'm at a loss as to why genmdesc causes that -- all
it really does is read strings from a file (using stdio), munges the
strings, and writes out new strings.  Try running it under strace
("strace -o logfile ./genmdesc ./cpu-......") and see which system
calls are causing the errors.  You'll want to kill it after a few
seconds or so.  Other than that, not sure what else you can try.. I'm
not sure if anyone has access to a netbsd system to test.
