--- Comment #13 from Michael Ellerman (michael at ellerman.id.au) ---
Thanks for the bisect.

I think I see what's happening. pmac_probe() is called before
mem_topology_setup(), so the min/max PFN variables are still zero. That causes
kmemleak_alloc_phys() to ignore the allocation, because the checks against the
PFN fail. Then kmemleak_no_scan() can't find the allocation and prints that

Can you try this, it moves the kmemleak_no_scan() call later:
