Hi René,

I imagine you Cc:ed me because the nedmalloc stuff came in via the Windows
port, contributed by Marius (who is no longer active on the Git project
because it works well enough for him)?

I would like to suggest an additional paragraph to explain why we do not
need to #include "git-compat-util.h" in nedmalloc from now on:

        Please note that nedmalloc never actually uses strdup() itself,
        therefore we need not enforce gitstrdup() usage in nedmalloc.c.

The patch looks quite straight-forward otherwise. (Junio, if you want an
ACK from me, you hereby got it).
