I've recompiled with SLAB and CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB enabled though:


Any flags anywhere that I need to set?

I've also cleared out the fscache cache. When I initially booted into
the 3.1.0-rc8 with SLAB, I was already at the cachefilesd.conf limit,
space-wise, and it would crash almost immediately (basically as soon
as load balancers started directing traffic to it again). I didn't
have console, so I don't have the full traceback for these ones, but a
little of the top actually made it to the logs:

This was the 2nd one, after I'd panicked it starting up cachefilesd a
couple of minutes earlier (which was also "kernel BUG at
fs/fscache/object-list.c:83"), so I figured I should clear the cache.
