Slab allocators: fail if ksize is called with a NULL parameter
A NULL pointer means that the object was not allocated. One cannot determine the size of an object that has not been allocated. Currently we return 0 but we really should BUG() on attempts to determine the size of something nonexistent. krealloc() interprets NULL to mean a zero sized object. Handle that separately in krealloc().
