    Are you harking back to the good old days of 2.6.24?
    Or looking ahead to a bright new future?

    There was a defect, in the TLB flushing sequence IIRC,
    which got them kicked out in a hurry. They might return
    - but I think everybody would prefer to have a better way
    of applying the existing allocators than this extra pool.
