Oh thanks, I didn't know about __builtin_constant_p.

But I was not optimizing kmalloc_index. isn't it confusing that
kmalloc_caches alllows maximum size of 32MB, and kmalloc_index allows
maximum size of 64MB?

and even if the code I removed is never reached because 64MB is always
bigger than KMALLOC_MAX_CACHE_SIZE, it will cause an error if reached.
