Subject[QUESTION] check for mem in slab
Hi list,

in file mm/slab.c and routine kmem_cache_init() I found there
is no checking for allocated memory on line:

/* 4) Replace the bootstrap head arrays */
struct array_cache *ptr;
ptr = kmalloc(sizeof(struct arraycache_init), GFP_KERNEL);

--> no check for ptr == NULL <--

BUG_ON(cpu_cache_get(&cache_cache) != &initarray_cache.cache);
memcpy(ptr, cpu_cache_get(&cache_cache),
sizeof(struct arraycache_init));


is that OK? or it's a bug?
