Re: patch: sockaddr instead of mbuf to carry addresses

Not objecting, but can you articulate the gain?

Is this really only about carrying them around on the call stack, or
does it extend to storage?  Do you see a new pool_cache object at some

What is the long-term plan (for the set of changes you are currently
envisioning)?  I would like to see that written down before we start.

Will this extend to drivers eventually?  If so, what's the pro/con of
that gain vs the added difficulty of porting drivers/changes from the
other BSDs?
