Tell the compiler that xmalloc family of allocators always return
non-NULL.  xrealloc in locale/programs also always returns non-NULL,
but that conflicts with default realloc behaviour and that of xrealloc
in libsupport, so keep it as is for now and resolve the differences
later.

I think this version is okay, thanks.
