This patch, now in mainline as commit f227f0faf63b ("slub: fix
unreclaimable slab stat for bulk free") causes the KASAN KUnit test
kmalloc_pagealloc_invalid_free to no longer fail:

[    0.000000] Linux version 5.14.0-rc3-00066-gf227f0faf63b (nathan@archlinux-ax161) (x86_64-linux-gcc (GCC) 11.2.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.37) #1 SMP Sat Jul 31 15:08:11 MST 2021
...
[    5.717678]     # kmalloc_pagealloc_invalid_free: EXPECTATION FAILED at lib/test_kasan.c:203
[    5.717678]     KASAN failure expected in "kfree(ptr + 1)", but none occurred
[    5.718909]     not ok 6 - kmalloc_pagealloc_invalid_free
...
[    9.481520] not ok 1 - kasan

The previous commit is fine:

[    0.000000] Linux version 5.14.0-rc3-00065-gb5916c025432 (nathan@archlinux-ax161) (x86_64-linux-gcc (GCC) 11.2.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.37) #1 SMP Sat Jul 31 15:05:09 MST 2021
...
[    9.347598] ok 1 - kasan

I am by no means a KASAN or mm/ expert, I noticed this when trying to
test KASAN with clang for ClangBuiltLinux's CI, so it does not appear to
be compiler dependent. It is reproducible for me in QEMU with
x86_64_defconfig + CONFIG_KASAN=y + CONFIG_KUNIT=y +
CONFIG_KASAN_KUNIT_TEST=y.

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide or
testing I can do.

Cheers,
Nathan
