Some of these are completely uninteresting though and look like
kmemleak bugs to me :-)

This is the interrupt controller mapping its registers, why on earth
would that be considered a leak ? kmemleak needs to learn to ignore
kernel page tables allocations.

This looks like some generic VFS stuff which similarly is meant to
remain for the whole duration of the system, what's the point on
reporting on init leaks like that ?

This is odd, looks like a page table allocation, I'm pretty sure those
get freed when the corresponding process dies, but this is init (PID1),
it probably never does. Again, a false positive.

Doesn't look like it...
