Looks this could be a real dead lock. we hold a lock to free a object,
but the free need allocate a new object. if the new object and the freed
object are from the same slab, there is a deadlock.

discard_slab() doesn't need hold the lock if the slab is already removed
from partial list. how about below patch, only compile tested.
