Thanks for your patch, which is now commit 63caa04ec60583b1 ("slab:
Remove __malloc attribute from realloc functions") in next-20220927.

Noreply@...erman.id.au reported all gcc8-based builds to fail
(e.g. [1], more at [2]):

    In file included from <command-line>:
    ./include/linux/percpu.h: In function ‘__alloc_reserved_percpu’:
    ././include/linux/compiler_types.h:279:30: error: expected
declaration specifiers before ‘__alloc_size__’
     #define __alloc_size(x, ...) __alloc_size__(x, ## __VA_ARGS__) __malloc
                                  ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ./include/linux/percpu.h:120:74: note: in expansion of macro ‘__alloc_size’
    [...]

It's building fine with e.g. gcc-9 (which is my usual m68k cross-compiler).
Reverting this commit on next-20220927 fixes the issue.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
