I don't understand what the logic here is: we have a couple of other
free_init_pages() calls but they don't have kmemleak_free_part() in
front.

Now, if kmemleak needs to be told that memory is getting freed, why
isn't kmemleak_free_part() called in free_init_pages() ?

This needs more explanation.
