| Before I submit this as an actually bug, I'd like the input of some people
| who know a little more about the Slab Allocator and Kernel Debugging.
| The Slab Allocator includes this line:
| #ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB
| in slab.c (line 89) to activate debugging.
| However, I couldn't find anywhere in the code where CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB is
| linked to CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL. In other words, setting the kernel as a
| debug kernel doesn't automatically set the Slab Allocator to debug too.
CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB is a separate option, listed under the
Kernel Hacking config menu (Debug memory allocations).
| 1) Am I missing something?
| 2) Is this intentional or by design?
| If this is an actually bug, it can be fixed by inserting the following code
| in slab.h immediately following the #include statements:
| #ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL
| #define CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB
Nope, just enable it.
