    Nice cleanups, Sascha.  I didn't realize there were so many places
    still using malloc/bzero combinations, not to mention all the junk
    code that can be removed when kmalloc is guarenteed to return non-NULL.

    I just read on the FreeBSD lists a week ago where someone was describing
    the random failures that start occuring in FreeBSD when it runs low on
    VM... precisely due to the NULL-return mechanic of their kernel malloc,
    and precisely why I removed it from DragonFly.
