Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/3] mm: security: introduce the init_allocations=1 boot
 option

Hmmmm.... Maybe its better to zero on free? That way you dont need to
initialize the allocations. You could even check if someone mucked with
the object during allocation. This is a replication of some of the
inherent debugging facilities in the allocator though.
