    they're already in under the name of mempools

    I'm perfectly aware the fs tends to be the less correct places in terms
    of allocations, and luckily it's not an heavy memory user, so I still
    have to see a deadlock in getblk or create_buffers or similar. It's
    mostly a correctness issue (math proof it can't deadlock, right now it
    can if more tasks all get stuck in getblk at the same time during a hard
    oom condition etc..).
