random commits to ORBit stable

Hi Guys,

	Trying to track down a bug in ORBit-stable on Power PC was ( and is )
made extremely, tediously, soul wrackingly difficult by the lack of a
suitable ChangeLog entry.

	Furthermore I don't recall seeing the broken patch discussed here - it
looks like it just 'magically' appeared in CVS. This is _really_
under-appreciated in a stable branch.

	So; since I can't get LXR to work with branches at all well, and there
is no ChangeLog - can someone own up to:

-       if (block->free_marker != FREE_MARKER_IS_ALLOCATED)

	Can someone explain _why_ we need this optimization, where it was
discussed, and why it was committed ?

	Also - it would be greatly appreciated if those ChangeLog haters would
reform themselves and write proper ChangeLog entries.
