Subject[PATCH 5/8] kmemleak: Do not report alloc_bootmem blocks as leaks
From
Date
This patch sets the min_count for alloc_bootmem objects to 0 so that
they are never reported as leaks. This is because many of these blocks
are only referred via the physical address which is not looked up by
kmemleak.
