It turned out that kmemleak does not play well with KASAN on those aarch64 (HPE
Apollo 70 and Huawei TaiShan 2280) servers.

After calling start_kernel()->setup_arch()->kasan_init(), kmemleak early log
buffer went from something like from 280 to 260000. The multitude of
kmemleak_alloc() calls is,

for_each_memblock(memory, reg) x \
while (pgdp++, addr = next, addr != end) x \
while (ptep++, addr = next, addr != end && \ pte_none(READ_ONCE(*ptep)))

Is this expected?
