  loadkeys segfaults with certain arguments in 16.10

Status in kbd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This can be reproduced as follows:

  1) Switch to VT 1 (ctrl+alt+f1)
  2) run: loadkeys garbage
  3) loadkeys will segfault

  The problem appears to be with the implicit declaration of xmalloc in 
loadkeys.c. It is resolved if
  #include "xmalloc.h" is added to the top of that file (and in fact all the 
other source files in kbd that reference xmalloc include that file).

  Interestingly xmalloc is resolved without include but the returned
  pointer seems to get truncated. It doesn't do this if the source is
  built with gcc 5.4 in 16.04 so maybe it has something to do with gcc
  6.2 in 16.10.
