mm/slab.c: kmemleak no scan alien caches

[ Upstream commit 92d1d07daad65c300c7d0b68bbef8867e9895d54 ]

Kmemleak throws endless warnings during boot due to in
__alloc_alien_cache(),

    alc = kmalloc_node(memsize, gfp, node);
    init_arraycache(&alc->ac, entries, batch);
    kmemleak_no_scan(ac);

Kmemleak does not track the array cache (alc->ac) but the alien cache
(alc) instead, so let it track the latter by lifting kmemleak_no_scan()
out of init_arraycache().

There is another place that calls init_arraycache(), but
alloc_kmem_cache_cpus() uses the percpu allocation where will never be
considered as a leak.
