SubjectRe: [openib-general] Re: [PATCH 35 of 53] ipath - some interrelated stability and cleanliness fixes

It turns out that since this is called from ipath_close(),
mm will always be NULL, so what we do is leak memory, and
possibly leave some locked pages. I've been looking at this
code this evening; fixing it is clearly needed, but doesn't help
the long delays, hangs, and watchdogs, so far.
