SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] module: check if memory leak by module.

Hmm, how can you track _all_ vmalloc allocations done on behalf of the
module? It is quite some time since I've checked kernel/module.c but
from my vague understading your check is basically only about statically
vmalloced areas by module loader. Is that correct? If yes then is this
actually useful? Were there any bugs in the loader code recently? What
led you to prepare this patch? All this should be part of the changelog!
