mm/slab: restructure kmem_cache_create() debug checks
kmem_cache_create() does cache integrity checks when CONFIG_DEBUG_VM is defined. These checks interspersed with the regular code path has lead to compile time warnings when compiled without CONFIG_DEBUG_VM defined. Restructuring the code to move the integrity checks in to a new function would eliminate the current compile warning problem and also will allow for future changes to the debug only code to evolve without introducing new warnings in the regular path. This restructuring work is based on the discussion in the following thread: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/7/13/424 [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix build, cleanup] Signed-off-by: Shuah Khan <shuah.khan@hp.com> Acked-by: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Pekka Enberg <penberg@kernel.org>
