SLAB: Record actual last user of freed objects.
Suleiman Souhlal [Thu, 2 Jun 2011 07:16:42 +0000 (00:16 -0700)]
Currently, when using CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB, we put in kfree() or
kmem_cache_free() as the last user of free objects, which is not
very useful, so change it to the caller of those functions instead.
