IN theory, that doesn't suprise me either. right now, when we ask for a
chunk that is larger than what remains in the buffer, we simply throw
away the remaining chunk and allocate a new buffer. So when you allocate
a lot of SMALL buffers, you would see more of this end-chunk waste. I
imagine it would add up.
That will all be resolved when I start reclaiming VOP memory of course.
