Thanks for reviewing it.

FYI, in the version I'm going to post this week I added another mutex to
ensure the exclusive opening of the /sys/kernel/debug/memleak file as
one can now use this file to configure kmemleak at run-time. The RCU
locking isn't affected and I'll add your "Reviewed-by:" line.
