I'm developing a kernel module for an ARM machine, while debugging I found
printed are all randomized and useless for debugging.

To prove I was not crazy I wrote this small program:

#include <linux/init.h>
#include <linux/module.h>
#include <linux/kernel.h>
#include <linux/slab.h>

MODULE_DESCRIPTION("A simple example Linux module.");

static int __init example_init(void) {
    uint32_t a;
    uint32_t b;
    uint32_t c;
    uint8_t d[10];
    uint8_t *e;

    printk(KERN_INFO "Hello, World!\n");
    printk(KERN_INFO "&a %p\n",&a);
    printk(KERN_INFO "&b %p\n",&b);
    printk(KERN_INFO "&c %p\n",&c);
    printk(KERN_INFO "&d %p\n",d);
    printk(KERN_INFO "&d[0] %p\n",&d[0]);
    printk(KERN_INFO "&d[1] %p\n",&d[1]);

    e = kmalloc(10, GFP_KERNEL);
    printk(KERN_INFO "&e[0] %p\n",&e[0]);
    printk(KERN_INFO "&e[1] %p\n",&e[1]);


 return 0;

static void __exit example_exit(void) {
 printk(KERN_INFO "Goodbye, World!\n");

And it gave me this output:

Hello, World!
&a b3f9fa31
&b 27e1c68a
&c da50d287
&d 9f9aec2b
&d[0] 9f9aec2b
&d[1] cc627580
&e[0] 98b8c9eb
&e[1] 45f248f8

Then I tested on my debian host machine which gave me the same kind of
randomized addresses.

When I search randomization the only thing I found is KASLR which I don't
think is the same thing.
