Subject[patch 07/10] SLUB: Avoid referencing kmem_cache structure in __slab_alloc
There is the need to use the objects per slab in the first part of
__slab_alloc() which is still pretty hot. Copy the number of objects
per slab into the kmem_cache_cpu structure. That way we can get the
value from a cache line that we already need to touch. This brings
the kmem_cache_cpu structure up to 4 even words.

There is no increase in the size of kmem_cache_cpu since the size of object
is rounded to the next word.
