As previously mentioned, I don't believe that this patch should be part of the 'fix management of pre-existing mempools' patchset, since it's a cosmetic change, rather than an actual fix.

Apart from that, I don't really see a need for this change - I think 'mp_size' is sufficiently descriptive.

Thanks,
Mark
