SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 5/6] 9p: Use a slab for allocating requests

Yeah, kmalloc-8, kmalloc-16 etc. This is fast and efficient if the
requested amount is a power of two as you said below.

Good idea, I'll include something like this in my benchmarks.

I'm still worried about big allocs for bigger rdma msizes (we've had our
share of troubles with mellanox allocating some big 256k queue pairs and
failing pretty often on very memory-fragmented servers, so now that's
fixed I'd rather avoid reproducing the same kind of pattern if
possible...), but the root of the problem is that it's a scam to call
that rdma when the protocol only allows send/recv operations... I guess
this could finally be motivation to work on a v2 allowing for zero-copy
and some scatter-gather lists to allow using fragmented memory.

Thanks for the fast reply as usual.

The other patchs don't have anything wrong, but I agree I'd want to keep
this as well unless the numbers are really horrible.
Still needs checking, though!
