Subject: Re: [PATCHv2 0/2] forcedeth: recv cache to make NIC work steadily


I made it abundantly clear that I am completely not supportive of
changes like this.

If anything, we need to improve the behavior of the core kernel
allocators, and the mid-level networking interfaces which use them,
to fix problems like this.

It is absolutely not sustainable to have every driver implement
a cache of some sort to "improve" allocation behavior.

Sorry, there is no way in the world I'm applying changes like
these.
