I can change to that name. It doesn't really matter to me.

Technically inuse is object + red zone. According to calculate_sizes():

        s->inuse = size;

        if (((flags & (SLAB_TYPESAFE_BY_RCU | SLAB_POISON)) ||
                s->ctor)) {
                /*
                 * Relocate free pointer after the object if it is not
                 * permitted to overwrite the first word of the object on
                 * kmem_cache_free.
                 *
                 * This is the case if we do RCU, have a constructor or
                 * destructor or are poisoning the objects.
                 */
                s->offset = size;
                size += sizeof(void *);

So (s->offset == s->inuse) when the free pointer is outside of the object.

The main reason why I don't use that is because there is a track data
structure in slub. There are functions name get_track() and set_track().
I don't want to confuse with them.
