How does it work? What restrictions does it have, and
what compromises were made?

+#define PERCPU_POOL_SIZE 32768

What's this?


The current implementation of kmalloc_per_cpu() turned out to be fairly
disappointing because of the number of derefs which were necessary to get at
the data in fastpaths. How does this implementation compare?


Thanks.
