I suggest the __alloc_size attribute be placed at the beginning of the
function declaration to be more similar to the common __printf attribute
location uses.

__alloc_size(2)
void * __must_check krealloc(const void *, size_t, gfp_t);

I really prefer the __must_check to be with the other attribute and that
function declarations have argument names too like:

__alloc_size(2) __must_check
void *krealloc(const void *ptr, size_t size, gfp_t gfp);

but there are a _lot_ of placement of __must_check after the return type

Lastly __alloc_size should probably be added to checkpatch
