I see what you mean. Does it really happen in your case? What's the
maximum batch size that you get during your workload?

I always wondered why don't we drain quarantine right in
quarantine_put when we overflow it? We already take quarantine_lock
and calling cache_free should be fine in that context, since user code
already does that.
