Hi All,

I'm sorry for this stripped report. I continue investigating this
issue and soon I will provide more info about it.

I found that there is one more suspicious slab:

[root@zdtm criu]# cat /proc/slabinfo | grep ^kmalloc-32
kmalloc-32 49024 49152 32 128 1 : tunables 0 0
0 : slabdata 384 384 0

I tried to use the kmemleak detector, but it reports nothing useful in
this case.

test/zdtm.py is a script, which we use to execute criu tests:
https://github.com/xemul/criu

$ python test/zdtm.py run -t zdtm/static/env00 -f ns --iter 10

This command executes a test in a new set on namespaces (net, mnt,
pid, ipc, uts), then it dumps and restores this test container ten
times and check that everything works as expected. The env00 test sets
an environment variable and then check that the variable has the same
value after c/r.
