He's probably having a memory fragmentation problem, but allocating
64K physically contiguous memory is something that should never be
done over and over again.  As the IPCOMP init function is called
regularly, this needs to be fixed.

I haven't looked at the IPCOMP code in detail, but I'd guess that
we're allocating 64K as the largest IP packet size is 64K.

Would it be possible to adjust the size of the buffer according
to the packet size and allocate it in ipcomp_input()/ipcomp_output()
