It seems like it's a regular allocation from the inode_cachep kmem_cache:

inode = kmem_cache_alloc(inode_cachep, GFP_KERNEL);

I'm not sure if there's anything special about this cache, codewise it's
created as follows:

inode_cachep = kmem_cache_create("inode_cache",
sizeof(struct inode),

I'd be happy to dig up any other info required, I'm just not too sure
what you mean by options for the cache?
