Under which circumstances is a NULL ->free_cached_objects valid?

The return value from ->free_cached_objects() doesn't actually get
used. Instead the code calls ->nr_cached_objects() twice.

I'd have thought that ->free_cache_objects() would always return the
number which it was passed. Unless someone asked it to scan more
objects than exist, perhaps.
