That looks like an addr within the object, like an INIT_LIST_HEAD.

ok, do_init_calls time frame with that config...CONFIG_SECURITY isn't
really doing any allocations, nor much in the way of memory writes.
It would get called into via the:

hugetlbs_get_inode
new_inode
alloc_inode
security_inode_alloc <-- and that'd be basically a no-op
