Subject[PATCH v3] kmemleak: add module param to print warnings to dmesg
Date
Currently, kmemleak only prints the number of suspected leaks to dmesg
but requires the user to read a debugfs file to get the actual stack
traces of the objects' allocation points. Add a module option to print
the full object information to dmesg too. It can be enabled with
kmemleak.verbose=1 on the kernel command line, or "echo 1 >
/sys/module/kmemleak/parameters/verbose":

This allows easier integration of kmemleak into test systems: We have
automated test infrastructure to test our Linux systems. With this
option, running our tests with kmemleak is as simple as enabling
kmemleak and passing this command line option; the test infrastructure
knows how to save kernel logs, which will now include kmemleak reports.
Without this option, the test infrastructure needs to be specifically
taught to read out the kmemleak debugfs file. Removing this need for
special handling makes kmemleak more similar to other kernel debug
options (slab debugging, debug objects, etc).

v3: Expand use case description. Replace config option with module parameter.
