If user does cat from /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak previously they would
see this, which is clearly wrong, this is system call context (see the
comm):

unreferenced object 0xffff88805bd661c0 (size 64):
comm "softirq", pid 0, jiffies 4294942959 (age 12.400s)
hex dump (first 32 bytes):

now they will see this:
