Subject: Re: [PATCH 4/5 net-next-2.6] [TIPC]: Consolidate subscriber &
 subscriber port references

From: Allan Stephens <>
Date: Tue, 13 May 2008 14:17:44 -0400

> This patch modifies TIPC's network topology service so that it
> only requires a single reference table entry per subscriber
> connection, rather than two.  This is achieved by letting the
> reference to the server port communicating with the subscriber
> act as the reference to the subscriber object itself.  (Since
> the subscriber cannot exist without its port, and vice versa,
> this dual role for the reference is perfectly natural.)  This
> consolidation reduces the size of the reference table by 50%
> in the default configuration.
