The number of free objects in a slab may have nothing to do with cache
hotness of all objects in the slab. You can only be sure that one object
(the one that was freed) is cache hot. Netperf may use them in sequence
and therefore you are likely to get series of frees on the same slab
page. How are other benchmarks affected by this change?
