Fix assertion in malloc.c:tcache_get

One of the warnings that appears with -Wextra is "ordered comparison
of pointer with integer zero" in malloc.c:tcache_get, for the

  assert (tcache->entries[tc_idx] > 0);

Indeed, a "> 0" comparison does not make sense for
tcache->entries[tc_idx], which is a pointer.  My guess is that
tcache->counts[tc_idx] is what's intended here, and this patch changes
the assertion accordingly.

Tested for x86_64.

	* malloc/malloc.c (tcache_get): Compare tcache->counts[tc_idx]
	with 0, not tcache->entries[tc_idx].
