there's a fifth option too i can think of: just dont free probe buffers
but put them into a linked list! Once there's too many of them, do the
gather/release thing once, to release a bunch of buffers at once. That
way the overhead of the gather/release will trigger only seldomly.
this is faster than the pushl based one, and much simpler as well i
