This was the last thread on this topic

Where Oliver want to group a few of the mbuf changes together.
Thats is good. But, looking at the history(holding a ARM specific patch for 8
months), I don't believe, we will get consensus on _all_ the items on
mbuf change like ports, m->next etc.
I think we had consensus on my change(making mbuf natural
aligned), but it was queued for grouping with other mbuf changes.
