If memory wasted by stack_table is a real concern, we may free it after
parsing slub_debug or add a condition taking into account
CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG_ON and slub_debug=- to the 

	if (slub_debug & SLAB_STORE_USER)
		stack_depot_want_early_init();

But I agree that if somebody runs a kernel with CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG_ON=y, the
goal is to have slub debugging on, so making CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG_ON select
STACK_DEPOT_ALWAYS_INIT totally makes sense to me.
