Slab: Fix memory leak in fallback_alloc()
Christoph Lameter [Sat, 21 Jun 2008 23:46:35 +0000 (16:46 -0700)]
The zonelist patches caused the loop that checks for available
objects in permitted zones to not terminate immediately. One object
per zone per allocation may be allocated and then abandoned.

Break the loop when we have successfully allocated one object.
