SLOB: fix bogus ksize calculation fix

This fixes the previous fix, which was completely wrong on closer
inspection. This version has been manually tested with a user-space
test harness and generates sane values. A nearly identical patch has
been boot-tested.

The problem arose from changing how kmalloc/kfree handled alignment
padding without updating ksize to match. This brings it in sync.
