Hi,
I am reading through linux 2.4.18 slab allocator source code. There, I frequently encounter the term "redzoning". When I googled for the term, I found out that a lot of people discussed about it but nobody bothered to give an exact definition. Also, Bovet & Cessati do not define the term.

Do anybody knows what "redzoning" means?

Hi,
I've found the answer to my question. Redzoning is about debugging. It is about putting free spaces around objects during debugging to check memory reference overruns.
