Oh, sorry, I was looking at the rte_zmalloc() code, assuming it would be changed there, but it looks like the commit was to change contigmem instead, which seems perfectly logical and reasonable.

It’s entirely possible that the folks here who tested 16.07.1 forgot to replace the contigmem driver, so perhaps that is the problem.

We’ll check it out and report back.
