Subject[PATCH] debugobjects: call debug_objects_mem_init eariler
Date
The current value of the early boot static pool size, 1024 is not big
enough for systems with large number of CPUs with timer or/and workqueue
objects selected. As the results, systems have 60+ CPUs with both timer
and workqueue objects enabled could trigger "ODEBUG: Out of memory.
ODEBUG disabled".

Some debug objects are allocated during the early boot. Enabling some
options like timers or workqueue objects may increase the size required
significantly with large number of CPUs. For example,

CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS_TIMERS:
No. CPUs x 2 (worker pool) objects:
start_kernel
workqueue_init_early
init_worker_pool
init_timer_key
debug_object_init

No. CPUs objects (CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS):
sched_init
hrtick_rq_init
hrtimer_init

CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS_WORK:
No. CPUs x 6 (workqueue) objects:
workqueue_init_early
alloc_workqueue
__alloc_workqueue_key
alloc_and_link_pwqs
init_pwq

Also, plus No. CPUs objects:
perf_event_init
__init_srcu_struct
init_srcu_struct_fields
init_srcu_struct_nodes
__init_work

However, none of the things are actually used or required beofre
debug_objects_mem_init() is invoked.

According to tglx,
"the reason why the call is at this place in start_kernel() is
historical. It's because back in the days when debugobjects were added
the memory allocator was enabled way later than today. So we can just
move the debug_objects_mem_init() call right before sched_init()."

Afterwards, when calling debug_objects_mem_init(), interrupts have
already been disabled and lockdep_init() will only be called later, so
no need to worry about interrupts in
debug_objects_replace_static_objects().
