Hm interestingly, both before and after your patch, MAX_OBJS_PER_PAGE might
be theoretically overflowed not by slub_min_order, but then with higher
orders. Seems to be prevented only as a side-effect of fragmentation close
to none, thus higher orders not attempted. Would be maybe less confusing to
check that explicitly. Even if that's wasteful, but this is not really perf
critical code.

If we failed to assign order above, then AFAICS it means even slub_min_order
will not give us more than 1 object per slub. Thus it doesn't make sense to
use it in a max() formula, and we can just se get_order(), no?
