Not odd, just a stupid oversight on my part.  Needed to switch to using
vfree too ;)

Here is an updated patch.

(Joe and Alasdair, I'll post 2 new cleaned up patches for 3.5; the
dm-space-map-disk.c change in this patch needs to be folded into v2 of
the "dm transaction manager: handle space map checker failure" patch I
posted yesterday)
