  27 * kmem_cache_create - Create a cache.
  28 * @name: A string which is used in /proc/slabinfo to identify this cache.
  29 * @size: The size of objects to be created in this cache.
  30 * @align: The required alignment for the objects.
  31 * @flags: SLAB flags
  32 * @ctor: A constructor for the objects.
  33 *
  34 * Returns a ptr to the cache on success, NULL on failure.
  35 * Cannot be called within a interrupt, but can be interrupted.
  36 * The @ctor is run when new pages are allocated by the cache.
  37 *
  38 * The flags are
  39 *
  40 * %SLAB_POISON - Poison the slab with a known test pattern (a5a5a5a5)
  41 * to catch references to uninitialised memory.
  42 *
  43 * %SLAB_RED_ZONE - Insert `Red' zones around the allocated memory to check
  44 * for buffer overruns.
  45 *
  46 * %SLAB_HWCACHE_ALIGN - Align the objects in this cache to a hardware
  47 * cacheline.  This can be beneficial if you're counting cycles as closely
  48 * as davem.
