There was a bug in patch 8 of the cleanup set that left a dangling
pointer in bond_release_all(). Definitely may bad for not announcing
that (and removing the patch set from SFG ?). I was relying on the
fact that people won't test it after I announced the set needs to be
re-done after finding a potential bug in patch 5.
I'm currently in the final stages of re-creating the set after
implementing the bug fixes and doing some improvements resulting from
internal code reviews. Perhaps this time I should publish it as an
"experimental" patch set and give everyone a chance to try it out
while our QA group grinds it to dust.
