Re: [GIT PULL] Early SLAB fixes for 2.6.31

Having to use GFP_NOWAIT instead of GFP_KERNEL in code that may perhaps be
used in early boot defeats the purpose of the whole endeavor. Some of
these function may also be used after boot and thus we will have to add
special casing so that GFP_KERNEL is used if boot is complete. We are
replacing one special casing with another.
