It's all committed. To try out the slab allocator you have to
compile up a kernel with two kernel config options:
I'm sure there will be some instability but I expect only minor issues
will come up. I was able to buildworld successfully on both my UP
and my SMP test box.
Just for yucks you can compare my slab allocator, which is
kern/kern_slaballoc.c, against the FreeBSD-5 slab allocator which
is (in FreeBSD-5) vm/uma_core.c and kern/kern_malloc.c.
