    Guys I implemented kmem_cache_destroy() long ago!!

    And as I described it's the wrong answer to this problem, instead
    kmem_cache_create needs to be made more intelligent. Adding a new
    interface for cache destruction requires changes to all users of SLAB,
    making SLAB creation more intelligent does not.

    This is why your patch was not applied.

    I find it amusing how you even quote my email where I describe how it
    should be fixed, and then complain about your approach not being
    looked at.
