    SLUB does not do things like managing object level NUMAness but relies on
    the page allocator to spread page size blocks out. It will only use one
    rotor and therefore not skip nodes. The SLAB issues are a result of the
    way object level NUMA awareness is implemented there.

    SLOB also does not do the SLAB thing and defers to the page allocator.
