David Miller - April 13, 2010, 6:48 a.m.
The only reference we store to this memory is in the form of a
physical address, so kmemleak can't see it.

Add a kmemleak_not_leak() annotation.

It's probably useful to be able to look at a dump of these things
either via debugfs or similar, and thus we could at some point store
them in some kind of table and therefore get rid of this annotation.
