That's a Recycle Filter Tank Assembly (RFTA) for the Urine Processing Assembly.  RFTAs are used to collect the non-processed items in Urine and are changed out after 231 L of processing.  Interestingly, the Transfer List calls the nickname "Torpedo".

Per the tagup, they'll have more info at 0300, but it looks like the potential DAM maneuver would be around the scheduled end of the EVA.  So they may move the hygene break and possibly get out the door 35 minutes early to provide more cusion.

Edit: Which is pretty much what ChrisB said at the end of his article.
