Subject: [PATCH 11/12] slab: Remove __malloc attribute from realloc functions

The __malloc attribute should not be applied to "realloc" functions, as
the returned pointer may alias the storage of the prior pointer. Instead
of splitting __malloc from __alloc_size, which would be a huge amount of
churn, just create __realloc_size for the few cases where it is needed.

Additionally removes the conditional test for __alloc_size__, which is
always defined now.
