I had some torture tests running over the weekend with the "one
problem" mentioned above fixed, which was a couple of kfrees that were
still using the old vhdr pointers. There were no oopses over a couple of
days of testing. I've posted a new build on the bug in launchpad in
hopes of getting some testing from those who were getting oopses quite
readily. The updated patch follows.
