slub: do not assert not having lock in removing freed partial

Vladimir reported the following issue:

Commit c65c1877

 ("slub: use lockdep_assert_held") requires
remove_partial() to be called with n->list_lock held, but free_partial()
called from kmem_cache_close() on cache destruction does not follow this
rule, leading to a warning:

His solution was to add a spinlock in order to quiet lockdep.  Although
there would be no contention to adding the lock, that lock also requires
disabling of interrupts which will have a larger impact on the system.

Instead of adding a spinlock to a location where it is not needed for
lockdep, make a __remove_partial() function that does not test if the
list_lock is held, as no one should have it due to it being freed.

Also added a __add_partial() function that does not do the lock
validation either, as it is not needed for the creation of the cache.
