SubjectRe: need help interpreting 'free' output.

My _preferred_ approach would actually be to move the slab pages to the
LRU list too, and have a special "slab" address space (we don't need to
actually hash them, we just make page->mapping point to it), and have the
cache shrink be done naturally as part of writepage().

This is a cool idea.

So when a SLAB block gets allocated from, we "reference" the
underlying page?

Franks a lot,
