The next step in this patch series for improving debugging of shrinker
related issues: keep counts of number of objects we request to free vs.
actually freed, and prints them in shrinker_to_text().

Shrinkers won't necessarily free all objects requested for a variety of
reasons, but if the two counts are wildly different something is likely
amiss.
