mm/sl[aou]b: Common alignment code
Extract the code to do object alignment from the allocators. Do the alignment calculations in slab_common so that the __kmem_cache_create functions of the allocators do not have to deal with alignment. Signed-off-by: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com> Signed-off-by: Pekka Enberg <penberg@kernel.org>
