This issue worried me some time ago, but I though that playing with the
values POWER_SMALLEST, POWER_LARGEST, POWER_BLOCK defined in slab.c could
be enough to solve this issue. Has anyone tried?. Is it safe?

It'd be easy to change.

Read the memory layout document in the doc/ directory to understand the
slab allocator first.
