Sarah, how did you manage to send an email with the "From:" line set to
Gerd's name and address?

There may be a simpler approach to this problem.

When using a new ring segment, keep the first TRB entry in reserve.
Don't put a normal TRB in there, instead leave it as a no-op entry
containing a pointer to the stream ring. (Make the prior Link TRB
point to the second entry in the new segment instead of the first.)

Then you won't have to add to or remove anything from the radix tree.
