Repository: testsuite


This patch adds support for running Asterisk under Valgrind (said "Val-Grinned") to check for memory allocation and reference problems.

To use, add -V to ./runtests.py and get a cup of coffee.  Any errors will be displayed in a stack trace format.

Tests can also activate valgrind in the yaml configuration.

By default, only confirmed leaks will be shown - thoses where all copies of the pointer to the allocation have been released.  Additional leak checking can be enabled.

Used to locate reference problems on Userevent issue, and incorporated several improvements over the prior attempt.
