    Hmmm. Ok. e1000 only uses kmalloc_node which is based on
    kmem_cache_alloc_node. However, kmalloc_node will likely become a
    macro like kmalloc.

    Applying the patch would mean that modules would only be
    able to use kmalloc_node and not able to allocate node specific memory
    from one of the slab caches.
