hi harald,

i just pushed the fix to jolly_merge branch.

the memory leak happened for each data message from SGSN to PCU. the
bitvector used for parsing ms-class was not freed.

additionally i included the bitvector's talloc context into the global
PCU's talloc context, so one can find out if it leaks.

regards,

andreas
