dont know if it fits the bill...but there is a debugging tool by ibm, dprobes, that can be used..just a shot in the dark..see if it suits your needs..also i came across a nice discussion at the linux kernel mailing list that suggested a couple of ways of doing it...one being pretty similar to the memleak library...

There is LeakMon tool

A little bit late, but anyway

You can try to integrate LeakMon by Daynix. It compiles in kernel and allows to track any resources allocation failures.
See here: http://www.daynix.com/index.php?opti...d=62&Itemid=71
And here: https://github.com/daynix/bricklets/...-documentation
