Subject[-mm patch] make kcalloc() a static inline
kcalloc() doesn't do much more than calling kzalloc(), and gcc has 
better optimizing opportunities when it's inlined.

The result of this patch with a fulll kernel compile (roughly equivalent
to "make allyesconfig") shows a minimal size improvement:
