Subject[PATCH] SLAB : Dont allocate empty shared caches
We can avoid allocating empty shared caches and avoid unecessary check of 
cache->limit. We save some memory. We avoid bringing into CPU cache unecessary
cache lines.

All accesses to l3->shared are already checking NULL pointers so this patch is
safe.
