Hi Nick, Gary
I was looking at this patch and decide to look back at the original
FreeBSD code to see how they fixed the memory leak. But i've run into
a problem. There is no src/sys/kern/sockio.c in the FreeBSD sources.
Since your names are in the author & contributer sections, please
could you tell me what the history is of this file.
