The slab allocator does not request compound pages when it does a
multi-page allocation. This is intentional. It does, however mark
the pages indicating they are being used for slab allocations. The
following patch adds these to the dump. Without this, items allocated
in slabs are not entirely dumped.
The patch is provided by Robin Holt <holt@...>
