linux-next: build failure after merge of the slabh tree

Hi Tejun,

After merging the slabh tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64
allmodconfig) failed like this:

net/caif/cfcnfg.c: In function 'cfcnfg_create':
net/caif/cfcnfg.c:68: error: implicit declaration of function 'kmalloc'
net/caif/cfcnfg.c:68: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
net/caif/cfcnfg.c:100: error: implicit declaration of function 'kfree'

Caused by commit 15c9ac0c80e390df09ce5730a7b08b13e07a8dd5 ("net-caif: add
CAIF generic caif support functions") from the net interacting with
commit de380b55f92986c1a84198149cb71b7228d15fbd ("percpu: don't
implicitly include slab.h from percpu.h") from the slabh tree.

I have applied the following patch for today. Dave, could you apply this
to the net tree please?
