[PREEMPT RT] SLUB and split softirq lock for v3.2-rt

3.2-rt is a long term supported kernel, which lacks two RT features
from 3.6: SLUB support and the split softirq lock implementation.

SLUB has a way better performance than SLAB on RT and the split
softirq lock implementation is necessary especially for realtime
networking applications.

The following patch series backports these features to 3.2-rt.

Steven, could you please apply these patches to a separate
3.2-rt-features branch?
