cgroup/kmemleak: Annotate alloc_page() for cgroup allocations
When the cgroup base was allocated with kmalloc, it was necessary to annotate the variable with kmemleak_not_leak(). But because it has recently been changed to be allocated with alloc_page() (which skips kmemleak checks) causes a warning on boot up. I was triggering this output: allocated 8388608 bytes of page_cgroup please try 'cgroup_disable=memory' option if you don't want memory cgroups kmemleak: Trying to color unknown object at 0xf5840000 as Grey Pid: 0, comm: swapper Not tainted 3.0.0-test #12 Call Trace: [<c17e34e6>] ? printk+0x1d/0x1f^M [<c10e2941>] paint_ptr+0x4f/0x78 [<c178ab57>] kmemleak_not_leak+0x58/0x7d [<c108ae9f>] ? __rcu_read_unlock+0x9/0x7d [<c1cdb462>] kmemleak_init+0x19d/0x1e9 [<c1cbf771>] start_kernel+0x346/0x3ec [<c1cbf1b4>] ? loglevel+0x18/0x18 [<c1cbf0aa>] i386_start_kernel+0xaa/0xb0 After a bit of debugging I tracked the object 0xf840000 (and others) down to the cgroup code. The change from allocating base with kmalloc to alloc_page() has the base not calling kmemleak_alloc() which adds the pointer to the object_tree_root, but kmemleak_not_leak() adds it to the crt_early_log[] table. On kmemleak_init(), the entry is found in the early_log[] but not the object_tree_root, and this error message is displayed. If alloc_page() fails then it defaults back to vmalloc() which still uses the kmemleak_alloc() which makes us still need the kmemleak_not_leak() call. The solution is to call the kmemleak_alloc() directly if the alloc_page() succeeds.
