Eliminate thousands of warnings with gcc 3.2 build

When building with gcc 3.2 I get thousands of warnings such as

include/linux/gfp.h: In function `allocflags_to_migratetype':
include/linux/gfp.h:105: warning: null format string

due to passing a NULL format string to warn_slowpath() in

#define __WARN()		warn_slowpath(__FILE__, __LINE__, NULL)

Split this case out into a separate call.  This also shrinks the kernel

          text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
       4802274  707668  712704 6222646  5ef336 vmlinux
          text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
       4799027  703572  712704 6215303  5ed687 vmlinux

due to removeing one argument from the commonly-called __WARN().
