Do you have a collection of bug numbers with interesting ideas?

Is it associated with any particular distro or kernel version?  Were there any interesting kernel changes in this area recently?  Or malloc in libc?

Did the reports start with the release of 4.3?  if so, how much did ntpd's memory usage change?

Is the mrulist tangled up with this problem?

What other ideas have you already eliminated?  :)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
