It looks like we need the following on top. I can't reproduce the
crash, but it's verifiable with WARN_ONs in the vmstat functions that
the nodestat array isn't properly initialized when slab bootstraps:

The zone counters work earlier than the node counters because the
zones have special boot pagesets, whereas the nodes do not.

Add boot nodestats against which we account until the dynamic per-cpu
allocator is available.
