Yup, I'm deallocating memory with ei_x_free() all the time.

Final question: is it better in term of performances to use "driver_mk_atom("ok");" instead?
I mean, declare all my atoms (as static variables) once at the beginning and use their references.
No need for me to deallocate anything in that case, right?
