        If an allocation for a bounce buffer failed, the _bus_dmamem_free() is 
called anyway, but the number of segments
        may contain some garbage.
        This may blow up the memory management!
        The problem is located in /usr/src/sys/arch/x86/x86/bus_dma.c - so all 
x86 architectures are affected!
        Due to the fact that allocation errors are rare - this bug is normaly 
not triggered.
        Found by a look into the sources while searching for an other DMA 
alloc-problem on SuperMicro systems.
        The following patch will fix the problem:
