Perhaps your PR is unnecessary:

$ svn log -v -r243023 /usr/src/sys/sys/param.h
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r243023 | bapt | 2012-11-14 04:58:12 -0600 (Wed, 14 Nov 2012) | 8 lines
Changed paths:
   M /head/sys/sys/param.h

Allow usernames up to 32 chars

PR:             kern/161091 [1],

The above would have saved me a few local diffs as well a few years ago...
