...although note that the only places where it should be replaced by address_to_str(wmem_packet_scope(), ...) (as you did in that change) are places where it's called *when dissecting packets*.  Not all routines in a packet-XXX.c file are called only when dissecting packets; most of your changes were reverted and then put back in, as they were safe, but some others were changed to use a scope of NULL, meaning "must be manually freed", and to manually free the items when they're not needed.
