    Well, as silly as it sounds to you, that _was_ the rationale for NTFS.
    I actually like it better than using kcalloc() but at the end of the
    day, I care more that the kernel uses same idioms all over. Makes the
    code easier to understand for my tiny brain...

    P.S. Those 632719 places can be fixed too with a handful of persistent
    kernel janitors ;)
