Subject: [PATCH] slab: Fix compilation error in case of !CONFIG_NUMA

Move the definition of slab_free() outside of #ifdef CONFIG_NUMA since it
is used by code which is not NUMA specific. Fixes the following error
introduced by the following commit:
5da1c3c725ab slab: recharge slab pages to the allocating memory cgroup

  CC      mm/slab.o
