Subject[patch 12/22] slub: Fix kmem_cache_destroy() with SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU
2.6.30-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>
commit d76b1590e06a63a3d8697168cd0aabf1c4b3cb3a upstream.

kmem_cache_destroy() should call rcu_barrier() *after* kmem_cache_close() and
*before* sysfs_slab_remove() or risk rcu_free_slab() being called after
kmem_cache is deleted (kfreed).

rmmod nf_conntrack can crash the machine because it has to kmem_cache_destroy()
a SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU enabled cache.
