kmalloc VS __get_free_pages() Q2
The slab is grabbing a bunch of pages (using get_free_pages) where it constructs some buffer pools
(of various size, which can be seen in /proc/slabinfo).
Then, when kmalloc() is called, the kmalloc API accesses the slab to get a buffer of the requested size
Is the above what is happening?
