Subject: Question on Box<T> smart pointer
Date: Tue, 27 Apr 2021 17:20:16 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210427152015.GA4653@agape.jhs> (raw)

Hi all,

I have a question. There's one thing I miss.

If Box<T> smart pointer allows allocating space on the heap,
how is this behaviour overridden in linux kernel Rust?

I mean, in c we have all API's to allocate heap space,
but using "pure" Box<T> in kernel space what kind of
allocation provides?

If this question is stupid I apologize in advance,

thank you,

fabio
