Can't we just transition IrDA sockets to "future", rather than
"transitional". This way we are done, and no longer need to worry
about it. I mean, you already did the patch, so what's the reason of
holding back ?
No, no reason, this latest scheme is good to balance the needs of
performance protocols critical protocols (tcp, etc) and the ones
where the overhead of a private slabcache is too much, the transitional
solution is just to keep the "old protocols", i.e. the ones not
converted yet, working for the time being. IRDA, from what we
discussed, will be converted today to its final form, that is,
without an slab cache, aggregate kmalloc at sk_alloc time, not using
anymore the generic "sock" slab.
