[pulseaudio-discuss] [PATCH v2] memblock: Detect block ID collisions in pa_memimport_get

Make sure we don't hand out the wrong block, in case we have the
same block ID in different SHM segments.

I pushed the second patch, which actually fixes the problem.

Looking at the code, I couldn't find a way b->type could be anything
else than PA_MEMBLOCK_IMPORTED, so I think the assert is safe.
