Subject: [PATCH] compiler_types.h: Test for __alloc_size__ again

While the "alloc_size" attribute is available on all GCC versions, I
forgot that it gets disabled explicitly by the kernel in GCC < 9.1 due
to misbehaviors. Add a note to the compiler_attributes.h entry for it,
and restore the #ifdef in compiler_types.h.

I swear I sent this earlier today, but I don't see it on lore still. Resending,
so apologies if this is a duplicate.
