slub: Remove objsize check in kmem_cache_flags()



There is no page->offset anymore and also no associated limit on the number
of objects. The page->offset field was removed for 2.6.24. So the check
in kmem_cache_flags() is now also obsolete (should have been dropped
earlier, somehow a hunk vanished).
