Subject[PATCH] slub: Disable the lockless allocator

The commit below solves this crash for me. Could we please apply this simple
patch, until the real bug has been found, to keep upstream debuggable? The
eventual fix can then re-enable the lockless allocator.

Thanks,

Ingo

Occurs due to:

Disable this code for now, it's not yet fully cooked.
