SLAB as part of its bootstrap pre-creates one kmalloc cache that can fit the
kmem_cache_node management structure, and puts it into the generic kmalloc
cache array (e.g. for 128b objects). The name of this cache is "kmalloc-node",
which is confusing for readers of /proc/slabinfo as the cache is used for
generic allocations (and not just the kmem_cache_node struct) and it appears as
the kmalloc-128 cache is missing.

An easy solution is to use the kmalloc-<size> name when pre-creating the cache,
which we can get from the kmalloc_info array.

Example /proc/slabinfo before the patch:

...
kmalloc-256         1647   1984    256   16    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata    124    124    828
kmalloc-192         1974   1974    192   21    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     94     94    133
kmalloc-96          1332   1344    128   32    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     42     42    219
kmalloc-64          2505   5952     64   64    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     93     93    715
kmalloc-32          4278   4464     32  124    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     36     36    346
kmalloc-node        1352   1376    128   32    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     43     43     53
kmem_cache           132    147    192   21    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata      7      7      0

After the patch:

...
kmalloc-256         1672   2160    256   16    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata    135    135    807
kmalloc-192         1992   2016    192   21    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     96     96    203
kmalloc-96          1159   1184    128   32    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     37     37    116
kmalloc-64          2561   4864     64   64    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     76     76    785
kmalloc-32          4253   4340     32  124    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     35     35    270
kmalloc-128         1256   1280    128   32    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata     40     40     39
kmem_cache           125    147    192   21    1 : tunables  120   60    8 : slabdata      7      7      0
