       ^^^^^

As the root cause of a kernel address exposure, Jann pointed out[2]
commit 152c432b128c, which I've tracked to here, only to discover this
regression was, indeed, reported. :(

So, we have a few things:

1) wchan has been reporting "0" in the default x86 config (ORC unwinder)
   for 4 years now.

2) non-x86 or non-ORC, wchan has been leaking raw kernel addresses since
   commit 152c432b128c (v5.12).

3) the output of scripts/leaking_addresses.pl is hard to read. :)

We can fix 1 and 2 with:
   https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210923233105.4045080-1-keescook@chromium.org/
(though that will need a Cc: stable now...)

If we don't do that, we still need to revert 152c432b128c in v5.12 and
later.

We should likely make leaking_addresses.pl a little more readable while
we're at it.
