Should be useful. A thing that afaict is lacking from objectcache at the
moment is a debug mode; I've spend 1+ day chasing a bug that was caused by
a very subtle double free for an mbuf and the way I did it (add kprintf()s
for every mbuf malloc/free, also logging their call sites and write script
to track alloc/frees) cannot be reused. If kmalloc/kfree can detect stuff
like that we could add an option that makes objcache pass through all gets
and puts. Ideas?
