Yes, kmemleak should likely be improved to recognize all allocations, but as I
understand it, some such pointers are embedded in other structures and very
difficult to find in the scan.
If you do not want to accept the patch, I can understand it. On the other hand,
finding the two real leaks that I had in the middle of over 4800 false positives
from vboxdrv was a pain. At least, I will carry the patch locally.
