I got an application which crashes into slab_alloc (slab.c:358). After
some investigation, I've found the faulty slab : l4rm_region_cache.
slabs_part != NULL, free_objs == NULL and num_free == 2.
My first question is : do you agree this state should not happen ?
If yes, I've got the following solutions :
1. there's a bug in slab library,
2. there's a bug in l4rm grow function,
3. synchro problem.
It don't believe in 1 or 3. But, in fact, I don't understand l4rm grow
Another info : one of the analysed crash happened into l4thread_create.
