Subject: [PATCH 4.19 211/321] drivers/base/platform.c: kmemleak ignore a known leak

Then, faddr2line pointed out this line,

/*
 * This memory isn't freed when the device is put,
 * I don't have a nice idea for that though.  Conceptually
 * dma_mask in struct device should not be a pointer.
 * See http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.pci/9081
 */
pdev->dev.dma_mask =
	kmalloc(sizeof(*pdev->dev.dma_mask), GFP_KERNEL);

Since this leak has existed for more than 8 years and it does not
reference other parts of the memory, let kmemleak ignore it, so users
don't need to waste time reporting this in the future.
