Right now the __cache_free() chain does "virt_to_page()" on NUMA
regardless, through the

struct slab *slabp;
slabp = virt_to_slab(objp);

thing. The suggested patch obviously makes it do it _twice_: once to get
the cachep, once to get the slabp. But some simple re-organization would
make it do it just once, if we passed in the "struct page *" instead of
the "struct cachep" - since in the end, every single path into the real
core of the allocator does end up needing it.
