Subject: [PATCH] mm/slab: make calculate_alignment() function static

calculate_alignment() function is only used inside 'slab_common.c'.
So make it static and let compiler do more optimizations.

After this patch there's small improvements in 'text' and 'data' size.

$ gcc --version
  gcc (GCC) 7.2.1 20171128

Before:
  text	   data	    bss	    dec	     hex	filename
  9890457  3828702  1212364 14931523 e3d643	vmlinux

After:
  text	   data	    bss	    dec	     hex	filename
  9890437  3828670  1212364 14931471 e3d60f	vmlinux

Also I fixed a 'style problem' reported by 'scripts/checkpatch.pl'.

  WARNING: Missing a blank line after declarations
  #53: FILE: mm/slab_common.c:286:
