OK, so you wanted NO_SCAN to not touch the block at all, not even update
the checksum. Maybe better add a new flag, NO_ACCESS (and we could use
it to track ioremap leaks, it's been on my wishlist for years).

You may want to print the CPU number as well since the information is
likely different on another CPU. Also, I think this context is
preemptable, so it's better with a get_cpu/put_cpu().

A concern I have here is that ptr may overlap with an existing object
and the insertion in the rb tree will fail. For example, with !SMP,
ptr == per_cpu_ptr(ptr, 0), so create_object() will fail and kmemleak
gets disabled.

An option would to figure out how to allow overlapping ranges with rb
tree (or find a replacement for it if not possible).

Another option would be to have an additional structure to track the
__percpu pointers since they have their own range. If size is not
relevant, maybe go for an xarray, otherwise another rb tree (do we have
any instance of pointers referring some inner member of a __percpu
object?). The scan_object() function will have to search two trees.
