Subject: [PATCH] slab: make more slab management structure off the slab

Since the size of the freelist has shrunk significantly we have to
adjust the heuristic for making the on/off slab placement decision.

Consider a 128 byte sized slab. If on-slab is used, 31 objects can be
in the slab. The size of the freelist for this case would be 31 bytes
so that 97 bytes, that is, more than 75% of object size, are wasted.

In a 64 byte sized slab case, no space is wasted if we use on-slab.
So set off-slab determining constraint to 128 bytes.
