When freeing chunks, we want to sync the steering
so that all the "hot" memory will be written to ICM
and all the chunks that are in the hot_list will be
actually destroyed.
When allocating from the pool, we don't have a need
to sync the steering, as we're not freeing anything,
and sync might just hurt the performance in terms of
flow-per-second offloaded.
