mm/slab.c: fix an infinite loop in leaks_show()

[ Upstream commit 745e10146c31b1c6ed3326286704ae251b17f663 ]

"cat /proc/slab_allocators" could hang forever on SMP machines with
kmemleak or object debugging enabled due to other CPUs running do_drain()
will keep making kmemleak_object or debug_objects_cache dirty and unable
to escape the first loop in leaks_show(),

do {
	set_store_user_clean(cachep);
	drain_cpu_caches(cachep);
	...

} while (!is_store_user_clean(cachep));

For example,

do_drain
  slabs_destroy
    slab_destroy
      kmem_cache_free
        __cache_free
          ___cache_free
            kmemleak_free_recursive
              delete_object_full
                __delete_object
                  put_object
                    free_object_rcu
                      kmem_cache_free
                        cache_free_debugcheck --> dirty kmemleak_object

One approach is to check cachep->name and skip both kmemleak_object and
debug_objects_cache in leaks_show().  The other is to set store_user_clean
after drain_cpu_caches() which leaves a small window between
drain_cpu_caches() and set_store_user_clean() where per-CPU caches could
be dirty again lead to slightly wrong information has been stored but
could also speed up things significantly which sounds like a good
compromise.  For example,

 # cat /proc/slab_allocators
 0m42.778s # 1st approach
 0m0.737s  # 2nd approach
