Subject[PATCH] x86/mm: fix a crash with kmemleak_scan()
Date
The first kmemleak_scan() after boot would trigger a crash below because

kernel_init
free_initmem
mem_encrypt_free_decrypted_mem
free_init_pages

unmapped some memory inside the .bss with DEBUG_PAGEALLOC=y. Since
kmemleak_init() will register the .data/.bss sections (only register
.data..ro_after_init if not within .data) and then kmemleak_scan() will
scan those address and dereference them looking for pointer referencing.
If free_init_pages() free and unmap pages in those sections,
kmemleak_scan() will trigger a crash if referencing one of those
addresses.

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffffffbd402000
CPU: 12 PID: 325 Comm: kmemleak Not tainted 5.1.0-rc4+ #4
RIP: 0010:scan_block+0x58/0x160
Call Trace:
scan_gray_list+0x1d9/0x280
kmemleak_scan+0x485/0xad0
kmemleak_scan_thread+0x9f/0xc4
kthread+0x1d2/0x1f0
ret_from_fork+0x35/0x40

Since kmemleak_free_part() is tolerant to unknown objects (not tracked by
kmemleak), it is fine to call it from free_init_pages() even if not all
address ranges passed to this function are known to kmemleak.
