ARC: define ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN = 8
The default value of ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN in "include/linux/slab.h" is "__alignof__(unsigned long long)" which for ARC unexpectedly turns out to be 4. This is not a compiler bug, but as defined by ARC ABI [1] Thus slab allocator would allocate a struct which is 32-bit aligned, which is generally OK even if struct has long long members. There was however potetial problem when it had any atomic64_t which use LLOCKD/SCONDD instructions which are required by ISA to take 64-bit addresses. This is the problem we ran into [ 4.015732] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): re-mounted.

Do note that atomic64_t is __attribute__((aligned(8)) which means gcc does generate 64-bit aligned references, relative to beginning of container struct. However the issue is if the container itself is not 64-bit aligned, atomic64_t ends up unaligned which is what this patch ensures.
