Hi again,

I have an additional info:

Here we see Stack Depot trying to alocate 1024 * 1024 entires on a 16 GiB RAM
AlmaLinux 8.7 (CentOS clone):

[ 0.071875] Stack Depot allocating hash table of 1048576 entries with kvcalloc
[ 0.071879] swapper: vmalloc error: size 8388608, vm_struct allocation failed, mode:0xdc0(GFP_KERNEL|__GFP_ZERO), nodemask=(null),cpuset=(null),mems_allowed=0-1023
[ 0.071888] CPU: 0 PID: 0 Comm: swapper Not tainted 6.2.0-rc3-mglru-kmemlk-nokasan-fixed-rcu+ #2
[ 0.071891] Hardware name: LENOVO 10TX000VCR/3140, BIOS M22KT49A 11/10/2022

On another machine with just 8 GiB this mechanism is less demanding, requests
slightly more than 512 * 1024 entries and succeeds:

[ 0.037858] Stack Depot allocating hash table of 524288 entries with kvcalloc
[ 0.038225] ftrace: allocating 52222 entries in 204 pages

I am not that deep into kernel code to debug this :-(

As plain kvcalloc() fails, the only thing that comes to mind - maybe 0.072 s
since boot is still too early to request 8.3 MB? What are the probable causes
that kvcalloc and vmalloc should fail?

Thanks,
Mirsad

Please help to check if the patch bellow will help. thanks. stack_depot_early_init will get memory directly from memblock_alloc.

Say Y here if you want to enable the memory leak
detector. The memory allocation/freeing is traced in a way
