Are you sure? It looks to me like it adds a member to the memcg_cache_array

diff --git a/include/linux/slab.h b/include/linux/slab.h

And then defines 'root_caches_node' to be 'memcg_params.__root_caches_node'
if we have CONFIG_MEMCG otherwise defines 'root_caches_node' to be 'list'

I believe it should since 'list' is used to add to slab_caches list.

I was unable to reproduce this crash, I built with

# CONFIG_MEMCG is not set

I then booted in Qemu and successfully ran
$ cat slab_allocators

Perhaps you could post your config?

Hope this helps,
