Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/4] [CORE]: datagram: basic memory accounting functions

Hello,

Thank you so much for your comments.

I understood. I'll re-write my patch set to make memory accounting
core functions.

Could you tell me more detailed information?

Does this comment mean interface and usage of memory accounting functions?
If so, I'll consolidate functions like sk_stream_set_owner_r() and
sk_stream_free_skb(). And, I may have to use memory accounting functions in
memory allocating functions like sk_stream_alloc_pskb() as possible
instead of inside of socket operating functions.

Or, does the comment mean that send buffer accounting in IP layer
(e.g. ip_append_data()) is wrong?

Anyway, in next patch set, I'm going to consolidate mem_schedule
functions and mem_reclaim functions. To do so, some of memory
accounting functions for stream protocols will be renamed or
be moved to core/sock.c from core/stream.c.

I would like to know what kind of enhancement must be needed for
memory accounting core functions.

Again, thank you for taking your time to review this feature.

Best regards,
Hideo
