Subject[patch 04/21] slub: Sort slab cache list and establish maximum objects for defrag slabs
When defragmenting slabs then it is advantageous to have all
defragmentable slabs together at the beginning of the list so that there is
no need to scan the complete list. Put defragmentable caches first when adding
a slab cache and others last.

Determine the maximum number of objects in defragmentable slabs. This allows
to size the allocation of arrays holding refs to these objects later.
