 kernel address dumps to user space

In drivers/net/ethernet/netronome/nfp/nfp_net_debugfs.c:65
and drivers/net/ethernet/netronome/nfp/nfp_net_debugfs.c:77,
nfp_net_debugfs_rx_q_read will dump the address of
rx_rings->rxds and frag to debugfs, which allows local user
to read the kernel address via debugfs.

static int nfp_net_debugfs_rx_q_read(struct seq_file *file, void *data)
{
    seq_printf(file, "RX[%02d,%02d]: cnt=%u dma=%pad host=%p   H_RD=%u
H_WR=%u FL_RD=%u FL_WR=%u\n",
           rx_ring->idx, rx_ring->fl_qcidx,
           rx_ring->cnt, &rx_ring->dma, rx_ring->rxds,
           rx_ring->rd_p, rx_ring->wr_p, fl_rd_p, fl_wr_p);
    ...
        if (frag)
            seq_printf(file, " frag=%p", frag);
    ...
}

and drivers/net/ethernet/netronome/nfp/nfp_net_debugfs.c:164
and drivers/net/ethernet/netronome/nfp/nfp_net_debugfs.c:167,
nfp_net_debugfs_tx_q_read will dump the address of
rx_rings->rxds and skb->head and frag to debugfs, which allows local user
to read the kernel address via debugfs.

static int nfp_net_debugfs_tx_q_read(struct seq_file *file, void *data)
{
