Subject: Help troubleshooting memory leak when highres=on
Date: Fri, 17 Jul 2020 01:49:30 -0400
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I am doing porting work; I am having a memory leak issue in a kernel

When highres=on, load average as returned by uptime are always null,
and KernelStack from /proc/meminfo steadily grows until the system
runs out of memory triggering oom-killer and eventually the whole
system hangs.

Above memory leak and load average issues are not seen when booting
the kernel using highres=off.

Any idea where I should start debugging these issues ?
