Subject[PATCH 5.15 39/42] tracing: Fix a kmemleak false positive in tracing_map
Date
From: Chen Jun <chenjun102@huawei.com>

[ Upstream commit f25667e5980a4333729cac3101e5de1bb851f71a ]

Doing the command:
echo 'hist:key=common_pid.execname,common_timestamp' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/xxx/trigger

Triggers many kmemleak reports:

unreferenced object 0xffff0000c7ea4980 (size 128):
comm "bash", pid 338, jiffies 4294912626 (age 9339.324s)
hex dump (first 32 bytes):

The reason is elts->pages[i] is alloced by get_zeroed_page.
and kmemleak will not scan the area alloced by get_zeroed_page.
The address stored in elts->pages will be regarded as leaked.

That is, the elts->pages[i] will have pointers loaded onto it as well, and
without telling kmemleak about it, those pointers will look like memory
without a reference.

To fix this, call kmemleak_alloc to tell kmemleak to scan elts->pages[i]
