Hi Linus,

There's dramatic queued up for this merge window for SLAB. Bulk of the
changes are straight-forward SLUB cleanups from Christoph Lameter's
recent SLAB/SLUB unification patch series but there's also few SLAB
and SLOB fixes thrown into the mix.


The following changes since commit 9fe6206f400646a2322096b56c59891d530e8d51:
