Tense shift (previous descriptions were in the present tense, while this one is in the imperative). More importantly, this doesn't answer the questions I'd have if I were in a hurry, which are what exactly is being freed (has the slab taken ownership of any memory from the user, e.g. when elemtype is a pointer?) and whether the slab needs to be init_ ed again. Maybe something like the following would work? - void clear_indegree(struct indegree *); Empties the slab. The slab can be reused with the same stride without calling init_indegree again or can be reconfigured to a different stride by calling init_indegree_with_stride. Call this function before the slab falls out of scope to avoid leaking memory.
