Not that 'structleak' is all that much better, because it's not
necessarily just about structs either.

'stack variable initialization' is too long. I dunno. But it's more
about "variables" (and in the case of kmalloc etc - perhaps
'allocations') than "memory", I feel.

The point is that in the kernel we do memory management and memory
initialization, and that's something very different.
