getbootfile() returns a static pointer to the full path name of the file
from which the current kernel was loaded. If it can not be determined,
or the file is not ``secure'' (see secure_path(3)), _PATH_UNIX from
<paths.h> is returned instead.
The getbootfile() function call appeared in FreeBSD 2.0 and NetBSD 1.6.
