It turns out that SLUB redzoning ("slub_debug=Z") checks from
s->object_size rather than from s->inuse (which is normally bumped
to make room for the freelist pointer), so a cache created with an
object size less than 24 would have the freelist pointer written beyond
s->object_size, causing the redzone to be corrupted by the freelist
pointer. This was very visible with "slub_debug=ZF":

BUG test (Tainted: G    B            ): Right Redzone overwritten

Adjust the offset to stay within s->object_size.

(Note that no caches in this size range are known to exist in the kernel
currently.)
