4096/192 = 21

with slub_min_objects=22 :

# cat /sys/kernel/slab/filp/order
# time ./socket8
real 0m1.725s
user 0m0.685s
sys 0m12.955s

with slub_min_objects=45 :

# cat /sys/kernel/slab/filp/order
# time ./socket8
real 0m1.652s
user 0m0.694s
sys 0m12.367s

with slub_min_objects=80 :

# cat /sys/kernel/slab/filp/order
# time ./socket8
real 0m1.642s
user 0m0.719s
sys 0m12.315s

I would say slub_min_objects=45 is the optimal value on 32bit arches to
get acceptable performance on this workload (order=2 for filp kmem_cache)

Note : SLAB here is disastrous, but you already knew that :)

real 0m8.128s
user 0m0.748s
sys 1m3.467s
