For comparison, back to the previous kernel (rc4)
in gnome-terminal:
  xterm -e mc : ~ 1.48 s
  resizing the window to full vertical size: ~ 10.35 s

The same rc4 kernel with slub_debug=-
in gnome-terminal:
  xterm -e mc : ~ 1 s
  resizing the window to full vertical size: ~ 1.92 s

Fedora release 16 (Verne) - Linux 3.1.0-0.rc4.git0.0.fc16.x86_64
loadavg: 0.59 0.53 0.22
