Subject: mm: slub: fix conversion of freelist_corrupted()

Commit 52f23478081ae0 ("mm/slub.c: fix corrupted freechain in
deactivate_slab()") suffered an update when picked up from LKML [1].

Specifically, relocating 'freelist = NULL' into 'freelist_corrupted()'
created a no-op statement.  Fix it by sticking to the behavior intended in
the original patch [1].  In addition, make freelist_corrupted() immune to
passing NULL instead of &freelist.

The issue has been spotted via static analysis and code review.
