    It could be a performance hit for slab with just one object - e.g the
    page sized names cache, used in every syscall that has a path name as a
    parameter.

    Ed, have you benchmarked that there is no noticable slowdown?
    e.g. test the time needed for stat("."). on UP, otherwise the SMP arrays
    would perform the caching.
