Hi Ben,

We have one more patch to enable/disable this feature.
If we do not need this feature, disable this feature and number
of peers won't be reduced.

Maybe this is OK for defaults, but we should also give the user the ability to configure various things, including disabling pktlog, setting number of vdevs, peers, tids, etc.  Maybe something like the parseable config file patch I linked too earlier?


You can also save a lot of RAM in your firmware if you naturally pack your structs better, and remove un-used members from various structures, etc.
