Subject: mm/slub: fix redzoning for small allocations

The redzone area for SLUB exists between s->object_size and s->inuse
(which is at least the word-aligned object_size).  If a cache were created
with an object_size smaller than sizeof(void *), the in-object stored
freelist pointer would overwrite the redzone (e.g.  with boot param
"slub_debug=ZF"):

BUG test (Tainted: G    B            ): Right Redzone overwritten
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

INFO: 0xffff957ead1c05de-0xffff957ead1c05df @offset=1502. First byte 0x1a instead of 0xbb

Redzone  (____ptrval____): 1a aa                      ..
Padding  (____ptrval____): 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00    ........

Store the freelist pointer out of line when object_size is smaller than
sizeof(void *) and redzoning is enabled.

Additionally remove the "smaller than sizeof(void *)" check under
CONFIG_DEBUG_VM in kmem_cache_sanity_check() as it is now redundant:
SLAB and SLOB both handle small sizes.

(Note that no caches within this size range are known to exist in the
kernel currently.)
