Hi,

 Please see if it is acceptable, if it is, please pull from:

bk://kernel.bkbits.net/acme/net-2.6

 I want to improve it a bit by not passing the slab cache name to
sk_alloc_slab, but create the name from the sk->sk_prot->name member,
but unfortunately the kmem_cache_t struct stores a pointer to the slab
cache name, which also creates problems for other improvements, like
my __initstr patch, that moves the strings in __init and __exit functions to
.text.init and .text.exit, perhaps I should send a patch to the slab code
to have a char array to store the slab cache name.

 Comments?

Best Regards,

- Arnaldo
