[PATCH] lockdep: annotate mm/slab.c
mm/slab.c uses nested locking when dealing with 'off-slab' caches, in that case it allocates the slab header from the (on-slab) kmalloc caches. Teach the lock validator about this by putting all on-slab caches into a separate class. this patch has no effect on non-lockdep kernels.
