I thought POOL_DIAGNOSTIC was added as a special option because it
imposed quite a bit of overhead even people running kernels with the
DIAGNOSTIC option could do without... This makes *everyone* pay the
price (even in totally production-tuned configurations), and as such
Some alternate suggestions:
(1) On POOL_DIAGNOSTIC configs, compile in a the non-diag pool_put
pool_get functions, and name then so non-POOL_DIAGNOSTIC LKMs
can find 'em (ie, without the underscores). Ugly, but should
do the trick.
(2) If we can do it and still pass the right file name/line number
info (this may not work) make the non-underscored versions into
inline functions in the headers.
