I need a bit of clarification wrt the above.  The above makes it
sound like the merge needed a semantic conflict resolution (e.g. one
side turned replace_map into a pointer while the other side added a
place where the containing structure is freed and now the merge
result needs to free the pointer in the new place that frees the
containing structure, but the merge forgot to do so).  Is that what
is going on?

Or is this just a simple "the topic that ends at 174774cd519^2 had
this leak that needs to be fixed by this patch; instead of rerolling
this is an incremental, because the topic has already been merged to
'master' and it is too late now"?

Looking at this patch in the context of the side branch (instead of
in the merged result) already makes sense to me, so I am guessing it
is the latter (i.e. not a botched merge that missed semantic
conflicts), in which case the proposed log message is a bit too
alarming and points readers in a wrong direction.  Shouldn't it
point at, say, c1274495 ("replace-object: eliminate replace objects
prepared flag", 2018-04-11) that turned the oidmap instance into a
pointer in raw_object_store?

Thanks.
