slab: implement bulk free in SLAB allocator

This patch implements the free side of bulk API for the SLAB allocator
kmem_cache_free_bulk(), and concludes the implementation of optimized
bulk API for SLAB allocator.

Benchmarked[1] cost of alloc+free (obj size 256 bytes) on CPU i7-4790K @
4.00GHz, with no debug options, no PREEMPT and CONFIG_MEMCG_KMEM=y but
no active user of kmemcg.

SLAB single alloc+free cost: 87 cycles(tsc) 21.814 ns with this
optimized config.

bulk- Current fallback          - optimized SLAB bulk
  1 - 102 cycles(tsc) 25.747 ns - 41 cycles(tsc) 10.490 ns - improved 59.8%
  2 -  94 cycles(tsc) 23.546 ns - 26 cycles(tsc)  6.567 ns - improved 72.3%
  3 -  92 cycles(tsc) 23.127 ns - 20 cycles(tsc)  5.244 ns - improved 78.3%
  4 -  90 cycles(tsc) 22.663 ns - 18 cycles(tsc)  4.588 ns - improved 80.0%
  8 -  88 cycles(tsc) 22.242 ns - 14 cycles(tsc)  3.656 ns - improved 84.1%
 16 -  88 cycles(tsc) 22.010 ns - 13 cycles(tsc)  3.480 ns - improved 85.2%
 30 -  89 cycles(tsc) 22.305 ns - 13 cycles(tsc)  3.303 ns - improved 85.4%
 32 -  89 cycles(tsc) 22.277 ns - 13 cycles(tsc)  3.309 ns - improved 85.4%
 34 -  88 cycles(tsc) 22.246 ns - 13 cycles(tsc)  3.294 ns - improved 85.2%
 48 -  88 cycles(tsc) 22.121 ns - 13 cycles(tsc)  3.492 ns - improved 85.2%
 64 -  88 cycles(tsc) 22.052 ns - 13 cycles(tsc)  3.411 ns - improved 85.2%
128 -  89 cycles(tsc) 22.452 ns - 15 cycles(tsc)  3.841 ns - improved 83.1%
158 -  89 cycles(tsc) 22.403 ns - 14 cycles(tsc)  3.746 ns - improved 84.3%
250 -  91 cycles(tsc) 22.775 ns - 16 cycles(tsc)  4.111 ns - improved 82.4%

Notice it is not recommended to do very large bulk operation with
this bulk API, because local IRQs are disabled in this period.
