Matt or others,
regarding below.  Do you or anyone else know where I can find
documentation on what makes a slab allocator different from others?

I don't want to bother you with questions about it as I know you are
fully capable of giving very nice, detailed answers complete with
ASCII diagrams :).

hit upon a methodology that will allow me to break the work up into
three more stages.


    I am going to be making the slab allocator the default at the end
    of this week, and hopefully remove the old allocator at the end of
    next week.  There are currently two open issues regarding the
    allocator: a blocking lock obtained during a fast int which can
    lockup the system, and a reported crash during booting which has
    not yet been tracked down.
