s->cpu_slabs includes the number of per cpu partial slabs since 3.2. And
that calculation is broken it seems. It adds up the number of objects instead
of the number of slab pages.

So much for review and having that stuff in -next for a long time. Sigh.


Subject: slub: Fix per cpu partial statistics

Support for SO_OBJECTS was not properly added to show_slab_objects().

If SO_OBJECTS is not set then the number of slab pages needs to be
returned not the number of objects in the partial slabs.
We do not have that number so just return 1 until we find a better
way to determine that.
