 Varnish Cache Trunk (ongoing)
 * Fixed implementation of the ``max_restarts`` limit: It used to be one
   less than the number of allowed restarts, it now is the number of
   ``return(restart)`` calls per request.
+* The ``cli_buffer`` parameter has been removed
+* Added back ``umem`` storage for Solaris descendents
+* The new storage backend type (stevedore) ``default`` now resolves to
+  either ``umem`` (where available) or ``malloc``.
 * Fix behaviour of restarts to how it was originally intended:
   Restarts now leave all the request properties in place except for
   ``req.restarts`` and ``req.xid``, which need to change by design.
