I came across some unnecessary uevents once again which reminded me
this. The patch seems to be lost in the leaves of the original
discussion [1], so resending.

Kmem caches are internal kernel structures so it is strange that
userspace notifiers would be needed. And I am not aware of any use
of these notifiers. These notifiers may just exist because in the
initial slub release the sysfs code was copied from another
subsystem.
