If you for the kmemleak scan (via echo) a few times, do you get more
leaks? The udp_table_init() function looks like it could leak some
memory but I haven't seen it before. I'm not sure whether this is a
false positive or a real leak.

I think the last line should be more like:

Acked-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com>
