Using 0.8.1 with DEBUG_RCU, adding a second thread calling synchronize_rcu regularly
gave an assert sometimes which showed some broken state.
Disabling the last free() caused the process to finish so
i found a small bug causing a removal on a hash to fail.
I freed the memory and there was your hash corruption.
Sorry for the noise ...
