Subject[PATCH v2] drivers: net: cpsw: fix kmemleak false-positive reports for sk buffers
Date
Kmemleak reports following false positive memory leaks for each sk
buffers allocated by CPSW (__netdev_alloc_skb_ip_align()) in
cpsw_ndo_open() and cpsw_rx_handler():

This happens because CPSW allocates SK buffers and then passes
pointers on them in CPDMA where they stored in internal CPPI RAM
(SRAM) which belongs to DEV MMIO space. Kmemleak does not scan IO
memory and so reports memory leaks.

Hence, mark allocated sk buffers as false positive explicitly.
