    SubjectRe: [PATCH 02/10] lib: genalloc: Generic allocator improvements
    I am curious about one thing

    Why do we need this allocator. Why not use allocate_resource and friends.
    The kernel generic resource handler already handles object alignment and
    subranges. It just seems to be a surplus allocator that could perhaps be
    mostly removed by using the kernel resource allocator we already have ?
