I also noticed in mm/util.c:

	/* Tracepoints definitions. */
	EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL(kmalloc);
	EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL(kmem_cache_alloc);
	EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL(kmalloc_node);
	EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL(kmem_cache_alloc_node);
	EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL(kfree);
	EXPORT_TRACEPOINT_SYMBOL(kmem_cache_free);

Should I send another patch to move this to slab_common.c?
