What drawbacks ? I see only advantages -
1) it bypasses global memory manager (if you need synch, you add one to
free list only). Or do you mean one still has to implement sync ? This
is not a drawback of the approach, it's implementation issue.
2) it speeds up the allocation and uses the least amount of memory
