+ Say Y here if you want to enable the memory leak
+ detector. The memory allocation/freeing is traced in a way
+ similar to the Boehm's conservative garbage collector, the
+ difference being that the orphan objects are not freed but
+ only shown in /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak. Enabling this
+ feature will introduce an overhead to memory
+ allocations. See Documentation/kmemleak.txt for more
+ details.
