SLAB: Fix lockdep annotations for CPU hotplug

As reported by Paul McKenney:

  I am seeing some lockdep complaints in rcutorture runs that include
  frequent CPU-hotplug operations.  The tests are otherwise successful.
  My first thought was to send a patch that gave each array_cache
  structure's ->lock field its own struct lock_class_key, but you already
  have a init_lock_keys() that seems to be intended to deal with this.

  ------------------------------------------------------------------------

  =============================================
  [ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
  2.6.32-rc4-autokern1 #1
  ---------------------------------------------
  syslogd/2908 is trying to acquire lock:
   (&nc->lock){..-...}, at: [<c0000000001407f4>] .kmem_cache_free+0x118/0x2d4

  but task is already holding lock:
   (&nc->lock){..-...}, at: [<c0000000001411bc>] .kfree+0x1f0/0x324

  other info that might help us debug this:
  3 locks held by syslogd/2908:

This patch fixes the issue by setting up lockdep annotations during CPU
hotplug.
