Hello,

hwloc v1.4.1rc2 is out with the following additional fixes:
* Fix hwloc_alloc_membind, thanks Karl Napf for reporting the issue.
* Fix memory leaks in some get_membind() functions.
* Install a valgrind suppressions file hwloc-valgrind.supp (see the FAQ).
* Fix memory binding documentation. Thanks to Karl Napf for reporting the
  issues.

Unless something bad happens, this will become the final v1.4.1 release
by the end of the week.
