kmemleak: Do not report alloc_bootmem blocks as leaks
Catalin Marinas [Thu, 27 Aug 2009 13:29:17 +0000 (14:29 +0100)]
This patch sets the min_count for alloc_bootmem objects to 0 so that
they are never reported as leaks. This is because many of these blocks
are only referred via the physical address which is not looked up by
kmemleak.
