> -- slurmrestd - fix segfault in slurmrestd db/jobs with numeric queries
> -- slurmrestd - add argv handling for job/submit endpoint.
> -- srun - fix broken node step allocation in a heterogeneous allocation.
> -- Fail step creation if -n is not multiple of --ntasks-per-gpu.
> -- job_container/tmpfs - Fix slowdown on teardown.
> -- Fix problem with SlurmctldProlog where requeued jobs would never launch.
> -- job_container/tmpfs - Fix issue when restarting slurmd where the namespace

> was used to build Slurm.
> -- Clear allocated cpus for running steps in a job before handling requested
> nodes on new step.
> -- Don't reject a step if not enough nodes are available. Instead, defer the
> step until enough nodes are available to satisfy the request.

> already allocated to another step. Instead, defer the step until the
> requested node(s) become available.

> -- Better handling of --mem=0.
> -- Ignore DefCpuPerGpu when --cpus-per-task given.
