This is one of the hotest NIC driver on linux at this moment,
with XDP and other efforts going on.

Some kmalloc() are becoming kmalloc_node() in some dev branches, and
there is no kmalloc_array_node() yet.

This kind of patch is making rebases/backports very painful.

Could we wait ~6 months before doing such cleanup/changes please ?

If you believe a bug needs a fix, please send a patch to address it.
