Subject[PATCH 4.19 018/205] powerpc/mm: Dont report hugepage tables as memory leaks when using kmemleak
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Christophe Leroy <christophe.leroy@c-s.fr>

[ Upstream commit 803d690e68f0c5230183f1a42c7d50a41d16e380 ]

When a process allocates a hugepage, the following leak is
reported by kmemleak. This is a false positive which is
due to the pointer to the table being stored in the PGD
as physical memory address and not virtual memory pointer.

unreferenced object 0xc30f8200 (size 512):
comm "mmap", pid 374, jiffies 4872494 (age 627.630s)
hex dump (first 32 bytes):
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................
backtrace:
[<e32b68da>] huge_pte_alloc+0xdc/0x1f8

See commit a984506c542e2 ("powerpc/mm: Don't report PUDs as
memory leaks when using kmemleak") for detailed explanation.

To fix that, this patch tells kmemleak to ignore the allocated
hugepage table.
