    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)
