slub: Make CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGE_ALLOC work with new fastpath
Christoph Lameter [Mon, 16 May 2011 20:26:08 +0000 (15:26 -0500)]
Fastpath can do a speculative access to a page that CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGE_ALLOC may have
marked as invalid to retrieve the pointer to the next free object.

Use probe_kernel_read in that case in order not to cause a page fault.
