Subject: [PATCH v5.6-rt] mm: slub: Always flush the delayed empty slubs in flush_all()

After commit f0b231101c94 ("mm/SLUB: delay giving back empty slubs to
IRQ enabled regions"), when the free_slab() is invoked with the IRQ
disabled, the empty slubs are moved to a per-CPU list and will be
freed after IRQ enabled later. But in the current codes, there is
a check to see if there really has the cpu slub on a specific cpu
before flushing the delayed empty slubs, this may cause a reference
of already released kmem_cache in a scenario like below:
	cpu 0				cpu 1
  kmem_cache_destroy()
    flush_all()
                         --->IPI       flush_cpu_slab()
                                         flush_slab()
                                           deactivate_slab()
                                             discard_slab()
                                               free_slab()
                                             c->page = NULL;
      for_each_online_cpu(cpu)
        if (!has_cpu_slab(1, s))
          continue
        this skip to flush the delayed
        empty slub released by cpu1
    kmem_cache_free(kmem_cache, s)

                                       kmalloc()
                                         __slab_alloc()
                                            free_delayed()
                                            __free_slab()
                                            reference to released kmem_cache
