    We need this for other issues as well. f.e. to establish memory allocation
    policies for the page cache, tmpfs and various other needs. Look at
    mempolicy.h which defines a subset of what we need. Currently there is no
    way to specify a policy when invoking the page allocator or slab
    allocator. The policy is implicily fetched from the current task structure
    which is not optimal.
