Subject[PATCH 2/8] rhashtable: remove nulls_base and related code.
This "feature" is unused, undocumented, and untested and so
doesn't really belong. If a use for the nulls marker
is found, all this code would need to be reviewed to
ensure it works as required. It would be just as easy to
just add the code if/when it is needed instead.

This patch actually fixes a bug too. The table resizing allows a
table to grow to 2^31 buckets, but the hash is truncated to 27 bits -
any growth beyond 2^27 is wasteful an ineffective.

This patch result in NULLS_MARKER(0) being used for all chains,
and leave the use of rht_is_a_null() to test for it.
