Running a relay under valgrind:

==46685== 37,152 (288 direct, 36,864 indirect) bytes in 18 blocks are definitely lost in loss record 76 of 81

Sure enough, consdiffmgr_ensure_space_for_files() looks like it has a

  smartlist_t *objects = smartlist_new();

and objects is never freed in this function.

Looks like the bug arrived in commit 7a096427.

This said, that's a lot of indirect lost bytes too. Is there something *in* the smartlist that gets leaked too? I didn't find anything obvious.
