nit on types here. I get some warnings:

kernel/stackleak.c:55:12: warning: assignment makes integer from
pointer without a cast [-Wint-conversion]
   boundary = current_top_of_stack();
            ^
kernel/stackleak.c:65:24: warning: assignment makes integer from
pointer without a cast [-Wint-conversion]
  current->lowest_stack = current_top_of_stack() - THREAD_SIZE / 64;
                        ^

So I think this needs to be:

+#define current_top_of_stack() ((unsigned long)task_stack_page(current) + \
+                                THREAD_SIZE)

If there is a v14, I think this hunk should be taken there, since it's
part of the common code.

Otherwise, this works for me and passes the lkdtm tests.
