Subject: [PATCH] debugobjects: avoid recursive calls with kmemleak
Date: Mon, 26 Nov 2018 11:53:43 -0500
Message-ID: <20181126165343.2339-1-cai@gmx.us> (raw)

CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS_RCU_HEAD does not play well with kmemleak due to
recursive calls.

fill_pool
  kmemleak_ignore
    make_black_object
      put_object
        __call_rcu (kernel/rcu/tree.c)
          debug_rcu_head_queue
            debug_object_activate
              debug_object_init
                fill_pool
                  kmemleak_ignore
                    make_black_object
                      ...

Hence, adding SLAB_NOLEAKTRACE to kmem_cache_create() to not register a
newly allocated debug objects at all.
