Subject[PATCH 04/11] DIO: Use a slab cache for struct dio
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

A direct slab call is slightly faster than kmalloc and can be better cached
per CPU. It also avoids rounding to the next kmalloc slab.

In addition this enforces cache line alignment for struct dio to avoid
any false sharing.
