.. oh, and a couple of things I forgot to mention.

The mirroring from to the public sites has been
pretty slow lately, and the main machine has been under a constant
load of about 35-50 for the last few days doing rsync checksumming or

So it may not show up on the public sites for a while. I'm still not
seeing the stuff I pushed out early in the morning on,
for example. So right now the delay seems to be in the 12+ hour range.

Developers who have direct access to can obviously
see it, but...

The other thing I forgot to mention was that people are now actively
encouraged to test out SLUB debugging again. Not only is it always
nice to enable allocator debugging to find bugs elsewhere, but this
time it's doubly encouraged just to double- and triple-check that the
SLUB bugs that caused problems are gone. In addition to whatever bugs
elsewhere caught by redzoning and poisoning.
