Subject[PATCH] kmemleak: fix check for softirq context
Date
From: Dmitry Vyukov <dvyukov@google.com>

in_softirq() is a wrong predicate to check if we are in a softirq context.
It also returns true if we have BH disabled, so objects are falsely
stamped with "softirq" comm. The correct predicate is in_serving_softirq().
