The kasan_slab_free hook's return value denotes whether the reuse of a
slab object must be delayed (e.g. when the object is put into memory
qurantine).

The current way SLUB handles this hook is by ignoring its return value
and hardcoding checks similar (but not exactly the same) to the ones
performed in kasan_slab_free, which is prone to making mistakes.

The main difference between the hardcoded checks and the ones in
kasan_slab_free is whether we want to perform a free in case when an
invalid-free or a double-free was detected (we don't).

This patch changes the way SLUB handles this by:
1. taking into account the return value of kasan_slab_free for each of
   the objects, that are being freed;
2. reconstructing the freelist of objects to exclude the ones, whose
   reuse must be delayed.

Changes in v2:
- Made slab_free_freelist_hook return bool and return true when KASAN is
  disabled. That should eliminate unnecessary branch in slab_free.
