Kmemleak reported many leaks while under memory pressue in,

slots = alloc_slots(pool, gfp);

which is referenced by "zhdr" in init_z3fold_page(),

zhdr->slots = slots;

However, "zhdr" could be gone without freeing slots as the later will be
freed separately when the last "handle" off of "handles" array is freed. It
will be within "slots" which is always aligned.

Acked-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com>

An alternative would have been a kmemleak_alloc(zhdr, sizeof(*zhdr), 1)
in init_z3fold_page() and a corresponding kmemleak_free() in
free_z3fold_page() (if !headless) since kmemleak doesn't track page
allocations. The advantage is that it would track the slots in case
there is a leak. But if the code is clear enough that the slots are
freed, just keep the kmemleak_not_leak() annotation.
