Yes, here is the deal.

The SMP-version of __mod_node_page_state() converts a passed value from bytes
to pages, but the non-SMP doesn't.

Thanks!

Subject: [PATCH] mm: memcg/slab: fix slab statistics in !SMP configuration

Since ea426c2a7de8 ("mm: memcg: prepare for byte-sized vmstat items")
the write side of slab counters accepts a value in bytes and converts
it to pages. It happens in __mod_node_page_state().

However a non-SMP version of __mod_node_page_state() doesn't perform
this conversion. It leads to incorrect (unrealistically high) slab
counters values. Fix this by adding a similar conversion to the
non-SMP version of __mod_node_page_state().
