Subject: [PATCH 06/12] coredump: Proactively round up to kmalloc bucket size

Instead of discovering the kmalloc bucket size _after_ allocation, 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.
