Hi Linus,

Here's batch of slab/slub/slob changes accumulated over the past few months.
The biggest changes are alignment unification from Christoph Lameter and SLUB
debugging improvements from Ben Greear. Also notable is SLAB 'struct
kmem_cache' shrinkage from Eric Dumazet that helps large SMP systems.

Please note that the SLUB lockless slowpath patches will be sent in a separate
pull request.
