SubjectSLAB_HWCACHE_ALIGN question
Greetings.

Why does SLAB_HWCACHE_ALIGN forces alignment on L1_CACHE_BYTES
and not SMP_CACHE_BYTES ? Does this have anything to do with
fitting cache objects in a single L1 cache line even when it
is uniprocessor and SMP_CACHE_BYTES is no equal to L1_CACHE_BYTES ?

Thanks
Dipankar
