slub: per cpu cache for partial pages
Allow filling out the rest of the kmem_cache_cpu cacheline with pointers to partial pages. The partial page list is used in slab_free() to avoid per node lock taking. In __slab_alloc() we can then take multiple partial pages off the per node partial list in one go reducing node lock pressure. We can also use the per cpu partial list in slab_alloc() to avoid scanning partial lists for pages with free objects. The main effect of a per cpu partial list is that the per node list_lock is taken for batches of partial pages instead of individual ones. Potential future enhancements: 1. The pickup from the partial list could be perhaps be done without disabling interrupts with some work. The free path already puts the page into the per cpu partial list without disabling interrupts. 2. __slab_free() may have some code paths that could use optimization.
