This patch series is harmless in that respect. You can tell alone from looking 
at the patches that it can't cause regressions in normal operation, because 
it only touches code which was previosuly not even built and is only called 
by qemu-img (after patch 3) and when DEBUG_ALLOC is defined.

But you would better apply the corruption fix I sent on Wednesday. ;-)

And even though I think that this series can't break anything, we definitely 
could use a strong test suite. I'm almost sure that there is at least one bug 
left (the one Jamie Lokier saw from 5006 on, but nobody ever found it).
