It was done as it is here in the vmem module, and more than that,
i think user doesn't wan't to have a preallocated buffer form a library.

As it is done, a user can have a huge memory space preallocated, and just pass
to smem module a pointer to somewhere in his kind of buffer pool, thing that i
can't do if we give him allocated buffer.

I think it is more flexible this way.

Best regards.
