rhashtable: Enforce minimum size on initial hash table

OK we're doing the size computation before we enforce the limit on min_size. ---8<--- We need to do the initial hash table size computation after we have obtained the correct min_size/max_size parameters. Otherwise we may end up with a hash table whose size is outside the allowed envelope. Fixes: a998f712f77e ("rhashtable: Round up/down min/max_size to...")
