> In this series, we refactor our Striding RQ receive-flow to always use
> fragmented WQEs (Work Queue Elements) using order-0 pages, omitting the
> flow that allocates and splits high-order pages which would fragment
> and deplete high-order pages in the system.
> The first patch gives a slight degradation, but opens the opportunity
> to using a simple page-cache mechanism of a fair size.
> The page-cache, implemented in patch 3, not only closes the performance
> gap but even gives a gain.
> In patch 2 we re-organize the code to better manage the calls for
> alloc/de-alloc pages in the RX flow.
