Subject[PATCH v3 2/2] slub: use count_partial_free_approx() in slab_out_of_memory()
slab_out_of_memory() uses count_partial() to get the exact count
of free objects for each node. As it may get called in the slab
allocation path, count_partial_free_approx() can be used to avoid
the risk and overhead of traversing a long partial slab list.

At the same time, show_slab_objects() still uses count_partial().
Thus, slub users can still have the option to access the exact
count of objects via sysfs if the overhead is acceptable to them.
