what is mean by linear socket buffers?

On Internet i found one document that states following statement
"Linux chooses to use linear buffers and save space in advance
because linear buffers make many other things much faster."

I want to know what is linear buffers? are they different than what we declare
in normal C programming syntax unsigned char *str.
