 * SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU - **WARNING** READ THIS!
 *
 * This delays freeing the SLAB page by a grace period, it does _NOT_
 * delay object freeing. This means that if you do kmem_cache_free()
 * that memory location is free to be reused at any time. Thus it may
 * be possible to see another object there in the same RCU grace period.
 *
 * This feature only ensures the memory location backing the object
 * stays valid, the trick to using this is relying on an independent
 * object validation pass. Something like:
 *
 *  rcu_read_lock()
 * again:
 *  obj = lockless_lookup(key);
 *  if (obj) {
 *    if (!try_get_ref(obj)) // might fail for free objects

 *    if (obj->key != key) { // not the object we expected
 *      put_ref(obj);
 *      goto again;

/**
 * kmalloc_array - allocate memory for an array.
 * @n: number of elements.
 * @size: element size.
 * @flags: the type of memory to allocate.
 *
 * The @flags argument may be one of:
 *
 * %GFP_USER - Allocate memory on behalf of user.  May sleep.
 *
 * %GFP_KERNEL - Allocate normal kernel ram.  May sleep.
 *
 * %GFP_ATOMIC - Allocation will not sleep.  May use emergency pools.
 *   For example, use this inside interrupt handlers.
 *
 * %GFP_HIGHUSER - Allocate pages from high memory.
 *
 * %GFP_NOIO - Do not do any I/O at all while trying to get memory.
 *
 * %GFP_NOFS - Do not make any fs calls while trying to get memory.
 *
 * %GFP_NOWAIT - Allocation will not sleep.
 *
 * %GFP_THISNODE - Allocate node-local memory only.
 *
 * %GFP_DMA - Allocation suitable for DMA.
 *   Should only be used for kmalloc() caches. Otherwise, use a
 *   slab created with SLAB_DMA.
 *
 * Also it is possible to set different flags by OR'ing
 * in one or more of the following additional @flags:
 *
 * %__GFP_COLD - Request cache-cold pages instead of
 *   trying to return cache-warm pages.
 *
 * %__GFP_HIGH - This allocation has high priority and may use emergency pools.
 *
 * %__GFP_NOFAIL - Indicate that this allocation is in no way allowed to fail
 *   (think twice before using).
 *
 * %__GFP_NORETRY - If memory is not immediately available,
 *   then give up at once.
 *
 * %__GFP_NOWARN - If allocation fails, don't issue any warnings.
 *
 * %__GFP_REPEAT - If allocation fails initially, try once more before failing.
 *
 * There are other flags available as well, but these are not intended
 * for general use, and so are not documented here. For a full list of
 * potential flags, always refer to linux/gfp.h.
