But I have a suggestion:

It's somewhat unfortunate to function call just for this. Although perhaps
compiler can be smart enough as charge_slab_page() (that callse objs_per_slab())
is inline and called from alloc_slab_page() which is also in mm/slub.c.

But it might be also a bit wasteful in case SLUB doesn't manage to allocate its
desired order, but smaller. The actual number of objects is then in page->objects.

So ideally this should use something like objs_per_slab_page(cache, page) where
SLAB supplies cache->num and SLUB page->objects, both implementations inline,
and ignoring the other parameter?
