Subject[RFC 3/7] slub: Add isolate() and migrate() methods
Add the two methods needed for moving objects and enable the
display of the callbacks via the /sys/kernel/slab interface.

Add documentation explaining the use of these methods and the prototypes
for slab.h. Add functions to setup the callbacks method for a slab cache.

Add empty functions for SLAB/SLOB. The API is generic so it
could be theoretically implemented for these allocators as well.
