It would mean that patch 1 solves both the SLAB and SLUB bug reports
since patch 2 is only effective for SLUB.

Reason that I send this patch is that although patch 1 fixes the
issue that too many kworkers are created, kmem_cache creation/destory
is still slowed by synchronize_sched() and it would cause kmemcg
usage counting delayed. I'm not sure how bad it is but it's generally
better to start accounting as soon as possible. With patch 2 for SLUB
and this patch for SLAB, performance of kmem_cache
creation/destory would recover.
