    SubjectRe: [PATCH] slabify iocontext + request_queue
    this just went in:

    While I agree on the io_context part, slabifying request_queue is a space
    waste on most machines out there. The averange desktop has less than a
    handfull of these, and even for smaller servers it doesn't exactly look
    like a gain.
