I _knew_ I shouldn't have sent that email. Sigh.

It was a proof-of-concept. Here ya go:

#define GFP_ATOMIC 1
#define GFP_KERNEL 2

typedef unsigned int size_t;

extern "C" void *kmalloc(size_t size, int flags);

char gfp_atomic[1];
char gfp_kernel[1];

inline void *operator new[](size_t size, char *where)
if (where == gfp_atomic)
return kmalloc(size, GFP_ATOMIC);
else if (where == gfp_kernel)
return kmalloc(size, GFP_KERNEL);
return 0;

char *foo(int n)
return new (gfp_atomic) char[n];

But it's fun trying.
