Subject[PATCH v3 1/3] mm: kmemleak: Make the tool tolerant to struct scan_area allocation failures
Date
Object scan areas are an optimisation aimed to decrease the false
positives and slightly improve the scanning time of large objects known
to only have a few specific pointers. If a struct scan_area fails to
allocate, kmemleak can still function normally by scanning the full
object.

Introduce an OBJECT_FULL_SCAN flag and mark objects as such when
scan_area allocation fails.
