BUG: Unable to handle kernel data access at 0x6020094ad020303c when CONFIG_DEBUG_KMEMLEAK=y is set (kernel 6.5-rc6)

On checking on kernel bugzilla #216156 (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216156) I found out that in addition to bug #216156 kernel 6.5-rc6 always crashes at boot when CONFIG_DEBUG_KMEMLEAK=y is enabled.

When DEBUG_KMEMLEAK is not enabled I don't get this crash on the machine.
