Subject[patch 03/30] cpu alloc: Remove SLUB fields
Remove the fields in kmem_cache_cpu that were used to cache data from
kmem_cache when they were in different cachelines. The cacheline that holds
the per cpu array pointer now also holds these values. We can cut down the
kmem_cache_cpu size to almost half.

The get_freepointer() and set_freepointer() functions that used to be only
intended for the slow path now are also useful for the hot path since access
to the field does not require an additional cacheline anymore. This results
in consistent use of setting the freepointer for objects throughout SLUB.
