Subject: [PATCH 08/12] openvswitch: Proactively round up to kmalloc bucket size

Instead of having a mismatch between the requested allocation size and
the actual kmalloc bucket size, which is examined later via ksize(),
round up proactively so the allocation is explicitly made for the full
size, allowing the compiler to correctly reason about the resulting size
of the buffer through the existing __alloc_size() hint.
