Kernel Memory Leak Detector

Kmemleak provides a way of detecting possible kernel memory leaks in a way similar to a tracing garbage collector, with the difference that the orphan objects are not freed but only reported via /sys/kernel/debug/memleak. A similar method is used by the Valgrind tool (memcheck --leak-check) to detect the memory leaks in user-space applications.
