A lot of problems we've seen in Fedora bugzilla from our slab debug kernels have been driver specific though (or out-of-tree junk which is another great argument for 'poison kfree in non-debug kernels'), so getting it into your nightly tests isn't really going to be the end-all of this class of bug.

I believe the future lies in tools like Coverity's checker, as it's the only way we can feasibly get complete coverage.

Ugh. yes, that's going to be much harder. Ah well, should give us something at least. Once we have the open harness, hopefully we can get a broader range of hardware in nightly test, but still ... won't cover everything.
