SubjectA question about memory fragmentation
Date
Hi everybody,

Thank you for your help!
I am going to tell you more information.

my question is about memory fragmentation when I allocate and free a lot of
small memory pieces in a kernel module.
Can it do a memory fragmentation problem?
Can I solve it using 'linux/list.h' API?

I think that is better to allocate a big piece of memory and get the nodes
from this buffer with my own memory management functions; Is this correct?.

Thanks.
