sysctl -t patch

Added -t option to display field types.  It may be used together with -d option.
This made easier to find field types when toying sysctls in systat.

kern.osrevision: integer

kern.maxvnodes: integer
kern.maxproc: integer
kern.maxfiles: integer
kern.argmax: integer
kern.securelevel: integer
kern.hostname: string

% sysctl -tda
kern.ostype: string: Operating system type
kern.osrelease: string: Operating system release
kern.osrevision: integer: Operating system revision

(In reply to Marcelo Araujo from comment #1)

By the way, it looks new types were added after I submitted the patch.
These new types need to be added for a complete list.
