Subject[PATCH] kmemleak: powerpc: skip scanning holes in the .bss section
Date
The commit 2d4f567103ff ("KVM: PPC: Introduce kvm_tmp framework") adds
kvm_tmp[] into the .bss section and then free the rest of unused spaces
back to the page allocator.

kernel_init
kvm_guest_init
kvm_free_tmp
free_reserved_area
free_unref_page
free_unref_page_prepare

With DEBUG_PAGEALLOC=y, it will unmap those pages from kernel. As the
result, kmemleak scan will trigger a panic when it scans the .bss
section with unmapped pages.

This patch creates dedicated kmemleak objects for the .data, .bss and
potentially .data..ro_after_init sections to allow partial freeing via
the kmemleak_free_part() in the powerpc kvm_free_tmp() function.

Posting as a proper patch following the inlined one here:

http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20190320181656.GB38229@arrakis.emea.arm.com

Changes from the above:

- Added comment to the powerpc kmemleak_free_part() call

- Only register the .data..ro_after_init in kmemleak if not contained
within the .data sections (which seems to be the case for lots of
architectures)

I preserved part of Qian's original commit message but changed the
author since I rewrote the patch.
