    Subject[PATCH] kmemleak: config-options: Default buffer size for kmemleak
    If we try to find the memory leaks in kernel that is
    compiled with 'make defconfig', the default buffer size
    of DEBUG_KMEMLEAK_EARLY_LOG_SIZE seem to be inadequate.

    Change the buffer size from 400 to 1000,
    which is sufficient for most cases.

    Thanks to Pekka Enberg's comments on my previous mail, I am sending a better patch,
    and adding new reviewers as suggested by the get_maintainer script.
