Ah! Thanks! Fixed now.

I think this is a good suggestion, but I do want to be careful to try
to make sure we add debugging tools to the larger dmabuf
infrastructure, rather then just the heap code (though having some
heap specific usage info would still be good). I think there's a
separate patchset to dmabufs originally from Greg Hackmann that
provides names that is supposed to help with what your suggesting.
