bootmem: use slab if bootmem is no longer available
Pekka Enberg [Wed, 10 Jun 2009 17:05:53 +0000 (20:05 +0300)]
As a preparation for initializing the slab allocator early, make sure the
bootmem allocator does not crash and burn if someone calls it after slab is up;
otherwise we'd need a flag day for switching to early slab.
