The patch isn't related to this problem, as it doesn't touch the things
that the cachemgr accounting is showing. I think someone indicated that
the problem relates to 8k pages being allocated by the accounting function
and being de-allocated with a free() instead of the free function that
decrements the counters. I'm not sure offhand where the fix took place,
but you might want to check the patch lists on the web page and see if
Duane et al have put something there for it. I didn't apply it since my
server is not having the problem at all.
