I suspect that you can get this information from Nitin. Actually, I believe we need more tests on latest Ikeda's patches
which implemented a shrink operation to CCache. You can find this mail thread here:
I've worked with CCache focused on embedded devices, mainly Nokia devices: N770 and N800. I did a presentation at Linux
Symposium 2007, you can find the article here: https://ols2006.108.redhat.com/2007/Reprints/briglia-Reprint.pdf
I did not have time to continue this work after OLS, but I'll continue this month yet, since it's part of my Master's
Nitin, do you have any news about that CCache allocator?
