Heads up: slab allocator fix just committed.

    I blew it yesterday with a slab allocator commit.  My double-free check
    code screwed up M_ZERO'd requests.  The fix just went in a moment
    ago so if you udpated in the last day or two, update again.

    Also note: changes made in the last few days will require a buildworld
    as well as a new kernel, for the standard reasons (kvm changes borking ps,
    top, systat), plus new programs (/usr/bin/checkpt) and modules 
    (checkpt.ko).  Note again that Kip's checkpt module represents severe
    security issues at the moment and should be considered highly 
    experimental.  But, at the same time, it is a fric'n *cool* feature!
