converted to a "greedy" allocation interface, but for the quota hashtables
it switched from allocating XFS_QM_HASHSIZE (nr of elements) xfs_dqhash_t's 
to  allocating only XFS_QM_HASHSIZE *bytes* - quite a lot smaller!  Then when 
we  converted hsize "back" to nr of elements (the division line) hsize went 
to 0. This was  leading to oopses when running any quota tests on the Fedora 8
test  kernel, but the problem has been there for almost a year.
