Subject: [PATCH v1] Revert "mm: kmemleak: alloc gray object for reserved region with direct map"
Date: Tue, 24 Jan 2023 15:02:54 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This reverts commit 972fa3a7c17c9d60212e32ecc0205dc585b1e769.

Kmemleak operates by periodically scanning memory regions for pointers
to allocated memory blocks to determine if they are leaked or not.
However, reserved memory regions can be used for DMA transactions
between a device and a CPU, and thus, wouldn't contain pointers to
allocated memory blocks, making them inappropriate for kmemleak to
scan. Thus, revert this commit.
