Sorry for confusing, I meant the original patch of this thread :-)

By checking disable_higher_order_debug & (slub_debug &
SLAB_NEVER_MERGE), we can detect if a cache is unmergeable but become
mergeable because the disable_higher_order_debug=1 logic. Those kind of
caches should be keep unmergeable.
