* alloc.c - specialized allocator for internal objects
* Copyright (C) 2006 Linus Torvalds
* The standard malloc/free wastes too much space for objects, partly because
* it maintains all the allocation infrastructure (which isn't needed, since
* we never free an object descriptor anyway), but even more because it ends
* up with maximal alignment because it doesn't know what the object alignment
* for the new allocation is.
