Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The kernel and libc are now virtually leak-free. The only remaining case where memory is leaked (that I know of) is when a process is killed by a signal with a default handler. We may want to consider trampolining into libc for cleanup regardless, because on DiVM, the kernel doesn't have too many options on how to clean up after the process.
