    I found whats using 32MB out of 8192-byte slab.

    size-8192 before:10 after:4012 diff:4002 size:8192 incr:32784384

    It is deadline_init():

    dd->hash = kmalloc(sizeof(struct list_head)*DL_HASH_ENTRIES,GFP_KERNEL);

    It is creating 8K hash table for each queue. Since we have 4000 queues,
    it used 32MB. I wonder why the current code needs 1024 hash buckets,
    when maximum requests are only 256. And also, since you are making
    request allocation dynamic, can you change this too ? Any issues here ?
