krealloc() is in generic core code (mm/util.c) and is the same for all allocators.

krealloc uses ksize() which is somewhat dicey for SLOB because it only works
on kmalloc'ed memory. Is the krealloc used on memory allocated with kmalloc()?
Slob's ksize could use a BUG_ON for the case in which ksize() is used on
kmem_cache_alloc'd memory.

/* can't use ksize for kmem_cache_alloc memory, only kmalloc */
size_t ksize(const void *block)
struct slob_page *sp;

if (unlikely(block == ZERO_SIZE_PTR))
return 0;

sp = (struct slob_page *)virt_to_page(block);

Add a BUG_ON(!kmalloc_cache(sp))?

if (slob_page(sp))
return ((slob_t *)block - 1)->units + SLOB_UNIT;
^^^^^^^ Is this correct?

return sp->page.private;
