That was a terse changelog.

Obvious question: how does this differ from mempools, and would it be
better to fill in any gaps in mempool functionality instead of
implementing something similar-looking?

The changelog very much should describe all this, as well as explaining
what the dynamic behaviour of this new thing is, and what applications are
envisaged, what problems it solves, etc, etc.

There are a number of coding-style glitches in here, but
scripts/checkpatch.pl catches most of them. Please run it, and fix.

A function like this should take a gfp_t from the caller, and pass it on.

Some of the indenting is a bit funny-looking in here.

resource_pool.alloc_mem() already returns void *, so there is never a need
to cast its return value.
