Looks like xen allocates via kmem_cache_alloc() and releases via

Seems to work nevertheless, but maybe it's pure luck and we'll
hit a bug sooner or later.  I'll try fix this and see if the
problem goes away then ...

I think this works because kfree calls kmem_cache_free after finding the cache pointer it has squirreled away. Where do we do this in XenLinux? Maybe there was a reason I did it that way. :-)
