on second thought, I'm confusing my kernel memory allocators.
BSD's free() takes a type rather than a size, so it would have
have a hard time determining how to free M_NOINTR allocations
even once it knew they were M_NOINTR. it would probably be best
to make separate interfaces for non-interrupt-safe memory allocation.
