Problem is, it doesn't seem that we'll be merging unionfs any time soon so
we shouldn't be adding slab infrastructure on its behalf. And I'd prefer
not to have to carry slab changes in a filesystem tree.
I think we can merge krealloc without unionfs. I'll whoop up a new patch
as per Christoph's suggestions. I think at least XFS already has its own
realloc and there might be some other open-coded users. It's not
_changing_ the slab as much as adding new functionality that makes sense
fron a general point of view.
The ksize exports we can add later if unionfs is to be merged.
