Btw. If this leads to early allocation failures too often then
dropping __GFP_NORETRY should help for now until a better solution is
available. It could lead to OOM killer invocation which is probably
the reason why it has been added but probably better than completely
disabling kmemleak altogether. Up to Catalin I guess.
