shrink_slab() is used not only in this place. I does not seem a trivial
change for me.

Because this function is used in several places, and we have some particulars
on root_mem_cgroup initialization, and this function called from these places
with different states of root_mem_cgroup. It does not seem trivial fix for me.

Let's do it on top of the series later, what is the problem? It does not seem
critical problem.
