    % egrep 'SL[AU]B' /usr/src/linux-2.6.21-mm2/.config
    # CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG is not set
    # CONFIG_SLUB is not set
    # CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB is not set

    Just seemed odd to do a 'make oldconfig' and get prompted for the value, and it
    gave a value of 'Y' to a debug option of a feature that wasn't selected. :)

    It took me a while to convince myself that somebody hadn't changed the default
    to CONFIG_SLUB while I wasn't looking....

    (Maybe the order of entries needs fixing - SLAB, SLAB_DEBUG, SLUB, SLUB_DEBUG,
    so that oldconfig and friends don't pop the question for debugging till *after*
    they ask if the feature should be included?
