   2 * Basic general purpose allocator for managing special purpose
   3 * memory, for example, memory that is not managed by the regular
   4 * kmalloc/kfree interface.  Uses for this includes on-device special
   5 * memory, uncached memory etc.
   6 *
   7 * It is safe to use the allocator in NMI handlers and other special
   8 * unblockable contexts that could otherwise deadlock on locks.  This
   9 * is implemented by using atomic operations and retries on any
  10 * conflicts.  The disadvantage is that there may be livelocks in
  11 * extreme cases.  For better scalability, one allocator can be used
  12 * for each CPU.
  13 *
  14 * The lockless operation only works if there is enough memory
  15 * available.  If new memory is added to the pool a lock has to be
  16 * still taken.  So any user relying on locklessness has to ensure
  17 * that sufficient memory is preallocated.
  18 *
  19 * The basic atomic operation of this allocator is cmpxchg on long.
  20 * On architectures that don't have NMI-safe cmpxchg implementation,
  21 * the allocator can NOT be used in NMI handler.  So code uses the
  22 * allocator in NMI handler should depend on
  23 * CONFIG_ARCH_HAVE_NMI_SAFE_CMPXCHG.
  24 *
