From: Rohit <***@samsung.com>

Use kmem_cache to allocate/free inode_smack since they are
alloced in high volumes making it a perfect case for kmem_cache.

Accounting of memory allocation is below :
total slack net count-alloc/free caller
Before (with kzalloc)
1919872 719952 1919872 29998/0 new_inode_smack+0x14
After (with kmem_cache)
1201680 0 1201680 30042/0 new_inode_smack+0x18
