[RFC PATCH v2] iommu/amd: gray the 'irq_remap_table' object for kmemleak

From: Michael Wang
Date: Fri Nov 20 2015 - 06:33:57 EST

The kmemleak testing on 3.18.24 show:

unreferenced object 0xffff880233ff9010 (size 16):
comm "swapper/0", pid 1, jiffies 4294937440 (age 2010.490s)
hex dump (first 16 bytes):
0a 0a 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 44 fb 33 02 88 ff ff .... ....D.3....
[<ffffffff8118192d>] create_object+0x10d/0x2d0
[<ffffffff815c2d4b>] kmemleak_alloc+0x5b/0xc0
[<ffffffff8116dd19>] kmem_cache_alloc_trace+0xb9/0x160
[<ffffffff814ffe51>] get_irq_table+0x151/0x380

This is caused by the 'irq_lookup_table' was allocated with
__get_free_pages() which won't create kmemleak object, thus it's
pointers won't be count as referencing 'irq_remap_table' in
kmemleak scan.

The 'irq_remap_table' won't be freed after initialized, doesn't
make sense to check it's leaking.

This patch mark the 'irq_remap_table' object as 'gray' to stop
the 'false positives' report.

Use kmemleak_not_leak() instead of kmemleak_ignore() since
the 'irq_remap_table' itself also contain pointer.
