    I am pleased to announce the release of BLCR 0.7.3, to fix a few bugs 
    found in 0.7.2.  The 0.7.3 release is now available from the BLCR 
    Downloads page:
    Relative to 0.7.2, this release fixes several bugs.  A detailed list of 
    changes appears below in the form of an excerpt from the NEWS file.
    You are receiving this either because you are on the checkpoint_at_lbl_dot_gov

    Bug fix release
      - Fix a kernel Oops on a rarely run error path.
      - Fix a in-kernel memory leak when restoring unlinked files.
      - Fix a file descriptor leak when cr_request_checkpoint() failed.
      - Fix fsync() handling to allow checkpoints to /dev/null
      - Fix bug 2309: cr_enter_cs() fails because of previous cri_info_free().
        This bug was resolved by adding two new functions:
          cr_inc_persist() and cr_dec_persist()
        See comments in libcr.h for a description and usage.
      - Fix bug 2311: vmadump_thaw_proc() returns -513.
      - Fix bug 2315: ENOMEM with processes with zero supplementary group IDs.
      - Fix bug 2316: "mkdir: file exists" module installation problem.
