Subject[PATCH -mm v3 4/8] slub: don't fail kmem_cache_shrink if slab placement optimization fails
Date
SLUB's kmem_cache_shrink not only removes empty slabs from the cache,
but also sorts slabs by the number of objects in-use to cope with
fragmentation. To achieve that, it tries to allocate a temporary array.
If it fails, it will abort the whole procedure.

This is unacceptable for kmemcg, where we want to be sure that all empty
slabs are removed from the cache on memcg offline, so let's just skip
the slab placement optimization step if the allocation fails, but still
get rid of empty slabs.
