I just committed all of your patches; thanks.

Some of my tests on Linux are crashing too; memset() within huge_ralloc() is causing a segfault, but I don't know whether the source or the destination is the problem, nor whether the bug is in jemalloc or the application (betting on jemalloc though).  Until that's resolved I won't be cutting a release.  Please let me know if you are able to further characterize the crashes you're seeing; they might be related to what I'm seeing.
