Good point, I should have made explicit reference to it.

It gets inlined into kmem_cache with CONFIG_SLUB if CONFIG_MEMCG is set
(include/linux/slub_def.h, line 112)

So I take that kmem_cache::name was still intended to be public,
just that that broke due to the inlining of struct memcg_cache_param
in slub_def.h?
