Bug #16297: calling undefined allocator by `Class.instance_method(:allocate)`

----------------------------------------
For instance, `Rational.allocate` is undefined.

```ruby
Rational.allocate #=> undefined method `allocate' for Rational:Class (NoMethodError)
```

But it can be called by `Class.instance_method(:allocate)`.

```ruby
Class.instance_method(:allocate).bind_call(Rational) #=> (0/1)
Class.instance_method(:allocate).bind(Rational).call #=> (0/1)
```

These allocators are defined for Marshal, and undefined as methods.
