From: Shu Wang <shuwang@redhat.com>

When running memory stress tests, kmemleak could be easily disabled in
function create_object as system is out of memory and kmemleak failed to
alloc from object_cache. Since there's no way to enable kmemleak after
it's off, simply ignore the object_cache alloc failure will just loses
track of some memory objects, but could increase the usability of kmemleak
under memory stress.

The default action for oom is still disable kmemleak,
echo oom=ignore > /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak can change to action to
ignore oom.
