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!
