How did you arrive at this conclusion? It certainly uses linux/slab.h
as it calls kmalloc(). Please don't introduce dependencies on
second-order includes. If file uses a function, define, struct etc.
from a header it should directly include that header. Just because the
code still compiles doesn't mean the change is for good.
