It has already been fixed in -CURRENT.
Unless, of course, this is a different bug. I believe the bug you are
referring to is the one whereby carp doesn't back out of allocations it
makes on member interfaces correctly.

Not for RELENG_6.

It's unlikely the fix will be MFCed to RELENG_6 because it involves some
of the changes related to address refcounting which either break the ABI
or are not conservative enough for -STABLE.
