Let's use kdoc while at it. Can you convert this to proper kdoc?

table_name is only used for this, however we can easily just make
another _register_sysctl_init() helper first, and then use a macro
which will concatenate this to something useful if you want to print
a string. I see no point in the description for this, specially since
the way it was used was not to be descriptive, but instead just a name
followed by some underscore and something else.

Is it *wrong* to run kmemleak_not_leak() when hdr was not allocated?
If so, can you fix the sysctl __init call itself?

PS. Since you have given me your series, feel free to send me a patch
as a follow up to this in privae and I can integrate it into my tree.
