Subject: [PATCH 1/5] Compiler Attributes: Add __alloc_size() for better bounds checking

GCC and Clang can use the alloc_size attribute to better inform the
results of __builtin_object_size() (for compile-time constant values).
Clang can additionally use alloc_size to informt the results of
__builtin_dynamic_object_size() (for run-time values).

Additionally disables -Wno-alloc-size-larger-than since the allocators
already reject SIZE_MAX, and the compile-time warnings aren't helpful.
