Subject[063/115] klist: Fix object alignment on 64-bit.
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: David Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

commit 795abaf1e4e188c4171e3cd3dbb11a9fcacaf505 upstream.

Commit c0e69a5bbc6f ("klist.c: bit 0 in pointer can't be used as flag")
intended to make sure that all klist objects were at least pointer size
aligned, but used the constant "4" which only works on 32-bit.

Use "sizeof(void *)" which is correct in all cases.
