Here is a patch series that addresses some of my outstanding concerns from
review.  Some may be already fixed in the 2nd series, I'm not sure.  Eric also
mentioned that he put the updated branch through coverity and found some
defects.  There may be some overlap there too.

Some of these are just reminders for myself to make sure certain items are
addressed eventually.  Sorry for the noise.
