Kmemleak is supposed to work with the memblock_{alloc,free} pair and it
ignores the memblock_reserve() as a memblock_alloc() implementation
detail. It is, however, tolerant to memblock_free() being called on a
sub-range or just a different range from a previous memblock_alloc(). So
the original patch looks fine to me. FWIW:
