What was the dd command line?  Specifically, how big were the file
writes?  I haven't been able to replicate a leak.  I'll try on a small
system seeing if I can replicate an OOM kill, but I'm not seeing a
leak.  (i.e., after the dd if=/dev/zero of=/test/$i" jobs) are
finished, the memory utilization looks normal and I don't see any
obvious slab leaks.
