Thank you for the clarification!

Ok, it seems that 1) is caused by switching to per-object accounting/stats of slab memory.
I don't now anything about 2). There are 38326 commits in between. Do you know which commits
are causing it?
I believe that 3de7d4f25a74 partially fixes regression 1).

I'll take a look what we can do here.

Some regression could be unavoidable: we're doing more precise accounting, but it requires
more work. As a compensation we're getting major benefits like saving over 40% of
the slab memory and having less fragmentation.

But hopefully we can make it smaller.

Thanks!
