Start dropping slab objects after 30 minutes and repeat every 30 minutes
in case we can't unplug more memory using alloc_contig_range().
Log messages and make it configurable. Enable dropping slab objects as
default (especially, reclaimable slab objects that are not movable).

In the future, we might want to implement+use drop_slab_range(), which
will also come in handy for other users (e.g., offlining, gigantic huge
pages).
