slab: shrink sizeof(struct kmem_cache)



Reduce high order allocations for some setups.
(NR_CPUS=4096 -> we need 64KB per kmem_cache struct)

We now allocate exact needed size (using nr_cpu_ids and nr_node_ids)

This also makes code a bit smaller on x86_64, since some field offsets
are less than the 127 limit :

Before patch :
# size mm/slab.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  22605  361665      32  384302   5dd2e mm/slab.o

After patch :
# size mm/slab.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  22349	 353473	   8224	 384046	  5dc2e	mm/slab.o
