Subject[PATCH -mm v3 7/8] slub: make dead memcg caches discard free slabs immediately
Date
Since a dead memcg cache is destroyed only after the last slab allocated
to it is freed, we must disable caching of empty slabs for such caches,
otherwise they will be hanging around forever.

This patch makes SLUB discard dead memcg caches' slabs as soon as they
become empty. To achieve that, it disables per cpu partial lists for
dead caches (see put_cpu_partial) and forbids keeping empty slabs on per
node partial lists by setting cache's min_partial to 0 on
kmem_cache_shrink, which is always called on memcg offline (see
memcg_unregister_all_caches).
