Re: namecache status, slab allocator status
Matt or others,
regarding below. Do you or anyone else know where I can find
documentation on what makes a slab allocator different from others?
I don't want to bother you with questions about it as I know you are
fully capable of giving very nice, detailed answers complete with
ASCII diagrams :).

I'm finally making some progress on the namecache. After a second

three more stages.
I am going to be making the slab allocator the default at the end
of this week, and hopefully remove the old allocator at the end of
next week. There are currently two open issues regarding the
allocator: a blocking lock obtained during a fast int which can
lockup the system, and a reported crash during booting which has
not yet been tracked down.
