Well it was almost certainly not a bug in SLAB itself (and your SLUB
test is obviously quite conclusive there). We'd have lots of reports.
It's probably too early to conclude it's hardware though.

It'll look something like this (pasted from Google):

>> kernel: Bad page state at free_hot_cold_page (in process 'beam',
>> page c1a95320)
>> kernel: flags:0x40020118 mapping:f401adc0 mapped:0 count:0
>> private:0x00000000
