hm, don't know.

A recent change in there was 0b1fb40a3b12 ("mm: vmscan: shrink all slab
objects if tight on memory"), but I can't see a way in which that could
cause shrink_slab() to get stuck in such a fashion. Perhaps we're
looping at a higher level in vscan.

shrink_slab_node() will get stuck if a shrinker has a zero .batch, but
alloc_super() uses 1024 and the trace shows ->count_objects, not
->scan_objects.
