It compiles fine now, and indeed, the memory usage patch worked 
beautifully.  glusterfsd memory consumption is now rock solid and small, 
even while handling heavy dd traffic.  rsync and cp -a of /usr also seem 
to be much faster now, for some reason.

Any ideas on the two cp -a and rsync issues I reported earlier in this 
thread (cp -a fails to preserve directory permissions, both fail to 
preserve setuid bit)? Once those are out of the way, rsync and cp -a 
should be able to make perfect copies on a GlusterFS.
