Subject: [PATCH 5/4] mm: Introduce SLAB_NO_FREE_INIT and mark excluded caches

In order to improve the init_on_free performance, some frequently
freed caches with less sensitive contents can be excluded from the
init_on_free behavior.

This patch is modified from Brad Spengler/PaX Team's code in the
last public patch of grsecurity/PaX based on my understanding of the
code. Changes or omissions from the original code are mine and don't
reflect the original grsecurity/PaX code.
