Not sure the quickest way to hack a fix for this. Maybe adding a dummy param here:

Revert upstream PR that broke sysctl.persist on FreeBSD

Luckily, PR 55719 reverts cleanly, without any merge conflicts.  The attached patch completely reverts it from the port.  I tested it by applying state in my environment.

Alan, thank you for submitting it, to be honest I don't see any reason to commit it right now as I'm going to revert this patch in upstream so new bugfix release will contain it pretty soon. What do you think?

(In reply to Kirill Ponomarev from comment #2)
It's just a matter of timing; if you apply my patch Salt will work today.  If not, then we have to wait on upstream.
Comment 4 ari 2020-07-15 03:48:21 UTC
The bugfix upstream is not tagged for 3001.1 so I think the patch really should be applied.
Comment 5 ari 2020-08-04 02:40:08 UTC
Could we get this merged please. 3002 is where this upstream bug fix will land and that's targeted for November.

  sysutils/py-salt: revert upstream PR 55719

  Salt PR 55719 changed the signature of Linux's sysctl.persist function,
  without changing it for any other OS.  Widespread breakage is the result.
  Revert that PR until upstream fixes it.
