SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] Dynamic kmem cache allocator for pid namespaces
Pavel Emelianov [xemul@openvz.org] wrote:
| Add kmem_cache to pid_namespace to allocate pids from.
|
| Since booth implementations expand the struct pid to carry
| more numerical values each namespace should have separate
| cache to store pids of different sizes.
|
| Each kmem cache is names "pid_<NR>", where <NR> is the number
| of numerical ids on the pid. Different namespaces with same
| level of nesting will have same caches.
|
| This patch has two FIXMEs that are to be fixed after we reach
| the consensus about the struct pid itself.
|
| The first one is that the namespace to free the pid from in
| free_pid() must be taken from pid. Now the init_pid_ns is
| used.
|
| The second FIXME is about the cache allocation. When we do know
| how long the object will be then we'll have to calculate this
| size in create_pid_cachep. Right now the sizeof(struct pid)
| value is used.

Shouldn't this be 'struct kmem_cache *' ?
