Slab allocators: consistent ZERO_SIZE_PTR support and NULL result semantics
Define ZERO_OR_NULL_PTR macro to be able to remove the checks from the allocators. Move ZERO_SIZE_PTR related stuff into slab.h. Make ZERO_SIZE_PTR work for all slab allocators and get rid of the WARN_ON_ONCE(size == 0) that is still remaining in SLAB. Make slub return NULL like the other allocators if a too large memory segment is requested via __kmalloc.
