It was based on -next at the time of submission, which contained patch in Paul's
tree that expands kmem_obj_info to print also free call stack [1] so that also
needs to be switched to stackdepot to work.

I expected [1] to be in 5.13-rc1, but as Paul explained to me, it's queued for
5.14. So if we (Oliver) rebase on current -next, can you queue it in the section
of mmotm series that goes after -next?
