Subject[PATCH 00/10] Kernel memory leak detector 0.8
Date
This is a new version (0.8) of the kernel memory leak detector. See
the Documentation/kmemleak.txt file for a more detailed
description. The patches are downloadable from (the whole patch or the
broken-out series):

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cmarinas/kmemleak/patch-2.6.18-rc1-kmemleak-0.8.bz2
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cmarinas/kmemleak/patches-kmemleak-0.8.tar.bz2

What's new in this version:

- reviewers comments implemented
- added support for type ids (currently approximated by sizeof)
- NUMA support
- reduced the memory allocation/freeing overhead by adding the
pointer aliases to the radix tree only when scanning the memory
- improved documentation and in-code comments

To do:

- more testing
- more investigation into the task stacks scanning
- precise type identification (after first assessing the efficiency of
the current method as it requires changes to the kernel API)
- (support for ioremap tracking)
