So we have a hash table defined in .bss (therefore entirely initialized
to NULL), and you add a call to "hash_init", which iterates on the whole
array and initialize it to NULL (again) ?

This extra initialization is redundant. I think it should be removed
from here, and hashtable.h should document that hash_init() don't need
to be called on zeroed memory (which includes static/global variables,
kzalloc'd memory, etc).

Thanks,

Mathieu
