I didn't check closely but there seems to be some filesystem specific
stats under /proc at least. No idea how useful those are as attack

I also suspect there are per-module knobs under /proc and /sys that
can be used to get indirect information. Many subsystems have
implemented their own slab wrappers in the past and they keep popping
up every now and then.
