mm/slab: improve performance of gathering slabinfo stats
On large systems, when some slab caches grow to millions of objects (and many gigabytes), running 'cat /proc/slabinfo' can take up to 1-2 seconds. During this time, interrupts are disabled while walking the slab lists (slabs_full, slabs_partial, and slabs_free) for each node, and this sometimes causes timeouts in other drivers (for instance, Infiniband). This patch optimizes 'cat /proc/slabinfo' by maintaining a counter for total number of allocated slabs per node, per cache. This counter is updated when a slab is created or destroyed. This enables us to skip traversing the slabs_full list while gathering slabinfo statistics, and since slabs_full tends to be the biggest list when the cache is large, it results in a dramatic performance improvement. Getting slabinfo statistics now only requires walking the slabs_free and slabs_partial lists, and those lists are usually much smaller than slabs_full. We tested this after growing the dentry cache to 70GB, and the performance improved from 2s to 5ms.
